I expect to find clients construct names with different character
representation than exists in the mergeinfo. Just as they do with paths;
the cases are exactly parallel.

And yes, I wouldn't be surprised, given how we treat and generate
mergeinfo, if there are repositories out there that have mergeinfo
entries encoded differently than the paths they refer to. I don't expect
them to be very common.
