If your files are in utf-16 (commonly known as 'UNICODE' in VS), then
you must not have the svn:mime-type property set of such files as 'text'
but as 'binary' (e.g., application/octed-stream).

Otherwise svn treats such files as ANSI text files (which they're not)
and you can end up with a big mess.
