That's not true in SVN 1.1.0. I can do these illegal things now:

svn ls file:///\serve\share with spaces\repos

svn ls file:///%5cserve\share with spaces/repos

The new SVN parsing seems to accept backslashes and slashes (almost)
interchangeably, except for that leading backslash on a UNC path. I'm not
saying SVN is correct, just that it is more tolerant as well as being broken
