Of course, whatever Vladmir ends up doing to make the commit go
through... well, there's a potentially equal amount of trouble when he
runs 'svn log' later on. The svn client will have a UTF-8 log message
to display, and it will try to convert it from UTF8->C, which will
choke on the Russian characters. This is what you get when you want
to write and read Russian characters, but keep your locale in "C".
