I wasn't actually worried about data loss as this won't affect me
<caveat>with the tools I am using at the moment</caveat>.
I was going through the svn issue tracker looking for things which a) I
understood and b) thought my vote might help. So I started looking for
issues relating to case sensitivity, and OS implementation specific problems
I thought the issue(1277) about colons in file names breaking checkout, was
a bit too much of an edge case for now, until the case problems are sorted.
Issue 1495 'Case sensitivity problem using file: on Windows' could be a pain

I think that the svn cli tools will have to be os aware, and then the repo
won't need to be.
If svn can allow for Windows, Linux and OS/X peculiarities in the client
(and API?) then the repo itself would not need changing.
