[RFC] Unicode character encoding for other-than-filenames?

Working on the NFC/NFD awareness of the Subversion client, I soon
realised this issue also affects URLs.

However, many of the textual identifiers we use in the client (such as
changelists) are also UTF-8 encoded. How should Subversion behave if a
user sets a changelist with NFC encoded characters and later (somehow)
tries to retrieve that same changelist using NFD encoded characters?
Giving an error message with the changelist name will look strange to
the user: the changelist identifier looks exactly the same to the

So, do we have to do Unicode-aware string comparison for
other-than-filename-identifiers? If so, which ones?
