Woah. That is dangerous for our public APIs. All of our public APIs
are supposed to be UTF-8. That's the primary reason for all the
svn_io_* wrappers around APR: make them all UTF-8.

Second, "cstring" doesn't tell me anything. Our utf-8-encoded strings
are cstrings, too. You mean something more like "native, local-style"
or something like that. I've seen that in headers before.

But I still think it's bad precedent to expose this in the API.
