svn doesn't accept @ in URL's (must be encoded as %40)

I don't know if this is a bug or not, but svn doesn't accept the
@ character in URL's (at least until 1.5.3); this character must
be encoded as "%40". For instance:

$ svn co svn+ssh://svn@localhost
svn: Try 'svn help' for more info
svn: Syntax error parsing revision 'localhost'

I think that if what follows @ doesn't correspond to a revision,
it should be regarded as part of the URL.

Otherwise the Subversion book should be updated to document this
point and correct the examples.
