Why should there a problem at import time? The repository stores all
paths as UTF8. If your locale can't deal with the UTF8->native
conversion on checkout, then the client environment is broken, not
subversion. Or maybe I'm misunderstanding you.

Set your locale correctly, and everything works fine. Why are you
committing non-ascii filenames in the first place if your locale doesn't
understand them? It's not a likely scenario... I don't see how someone
could be "surprised" by this.
