All that is good news. So I guess the important question is: what spells
out "the notion of 'valid pathname on a Subversion filesystem'"? Is it
"any valid Unicode code point?" What I'm getting at is that I need to
know which characters, if any, I need to encode before passing them to
Subversion. If Subversion supports any Unicode character, I can just
pass the path decoded and sleep soundly at night. If not, I need to know
which ones to decode and which ones to pass through.
