But Subversion *requires* that each application calls
svn_path_canonicalize() before passing a path to any API.
Which means the 'old' form is the *only* one that really works.

in that case I wouldn't call it the old form but the only working one.

What I maybe not quite get:
What exactly do you want to change in TSVN? The path/URL handling works,
you can use the 'new' format if you want (it works too).
Where exactly do you want TSVN to change?
