preparing a path or url for an svn api call....

I received a bug report for subcommander that it doesn't properly
handle urls with spaces.

Grepping through the subversion code the magic trick (which is well
hidden for someone who is working with the svn_client api ;-) seems
to be in the loop of svn_opt_args_to_target_array2.

The code is basically:

   if( svn_path_is_url(pathOrUrl) )
     // do anything necessary to create a proper url
     path = svn_path_uri_from_iri( );
     path = svn_path_uri_autoescape( );
     path = svn_path_canonicalize( );

     ... some additional checks if it is a valid url
     ... error if not
     path = svn_path_canonicalize( );

I also found a nearly 1:1 copy of this code in the java bindings and a
stripped down version in mucc.

It looks like that i have to prepare any path or url i pass to the
subversion api (talking about svn_client here..) with the above code.

If that is the case, I would like to move the above code into its own
function (named svn_path_prepare?) so it is available to any subversion
client without copy and paste.

What do you think?
