Well, this is exactly the sort of thing why Ben, myself, and others have
been saying all along that we shouldn't give the FS layer (or BDB/FSFS
layers) any special significance in making decisions about which characters
Subversion considers legal in filenames. If all layers were consistent,
there wouldn't be any such problem.

Alas, the current state of things is closest to what could be called
consensus.
