According to my tests, you can only add/commit the file after setting the
"right" encoding (in my tests de_DE.UTF-8). The file will be stored as NFD
in the repository and it seems to be possible to work with it on the Mac
using Subversion. You are able to check out the file (without setting an
environment variable) on Windows, but it will be fetched as NFD. You now are
able to create another file in the same directory in NFC whose file name
*looks* similar in Windows Explorer (but not, for example, in the Altap
Salamander), but is actually different.
