This is entirely your problem, since the entries in the .svn folders are not
designed to be accessed directly but only through the subversion libraries.
There are subversion bindings for different programming languages available.
Please use these and don't mess around with the files directly.

No, the subversion developers probably won't do this. You addressed your
question to wrong list, since TortoiseSVN is a subversion client that uses
the subversion libraries...
