Unicode, dump files, and file names

I'm assisting with development of the vss2svn conversion program for
converting a Visual Source Safe repository to a Subversion dump file.


In my VSS repo I have some source files that include character 0x85
(ellipsis) in the name. A typical filename is "Move to Point...-D.bmp",
where the "..." is the single-byte CP1252 character 0x85.


vss2svn extracts the filename from CP1252-encoded VSS repository DB and
writes it to a UTF-8-encoded XML file.

What should we put in the dump file for the file name? Should it be
UTF-8-encoded? What does "svnadmin load" expect? (I'm seeing gibberish in
the filename in the resulting WC, and I suspect that double-encoding is
happening somewhere in the conversion process.)
