Hmm. It does feel to me that it is *slightly* more likely that a user
file name would have a single quote in it ("David's version") than a
double quote. (And if you are using single quotes, you don't need the
backslashes there.)

Or really, assuming we're stuck with using "system" (which seems to be
the case) we might want to add an svn_path_shell_autoescape, which is
like svn_path_uri_autoescape but escapes with backslashes instead of
%nn codes... Not only would that let you edit files with weird names,
but you wouldn't need all of the directory-changing games in the first
