The svn:externals property is a Subversion property. It's format is
defined by the Subversion library. It requires that URLs are properly

I really doubt that anyone adds/modifies those properties on a daily
basis, so having users do the escaping themselves should not be a big
problem - but it would be a big effort for TSVN to do it automatically
for you and get it right in all special cases.
