http://wiki.apache.org/subversion/NonNormalizingUnicodeCompositionAwareness

The draft proposes that the server does not discriminate any composition, apart from ensuring that creation of new name collisions is not allowed.

Ensuring that paths come from wc.db applies to existing object. We can discuss whether Mac client should normalize to NFC, but that would be an option in my opinion.
