Yes. TSVN allows you to enter non-URI-encoded URL's as you can in your
browser. TSVN then does the encoding itself.
When you enter file:///%5cserve/share/repos in the command line client,
you 'trick' it by not specifying the '\' directly as you should be able
to do, and the CL client then doesn't any encodings anymore. But that
also means that e.g.
file:///%5cserve/share with spaces/repos won't work anymore, then you
have to use
for it to work, which you wouldn't have if the UNC share paths would
actually work in Subversion.
