This changes the behaviour of existing svn:externals that use \ as an
ordinary non-escape character. In the past using an svn:externals
like "a\b URL" would produce a directory called "a\b" (that's a
3-character name) while a quick test indicates that it now appears to
create a directory called "ab". To get "a\b" the svn:externals needs
to be changed to "a\\b URL". I don't know if anyone is using such
names in svn:externals, and I don't think they would not work on
Windows, but change could break existing working copies and there
doesn't appear to be a way to define the svn:externals so that it will
work with both old and new clients.
