RE: URI escaping in repository URLs

From: Crucius, Wesley <WCrucius_at_sandc.com>

My $0.02 would be that this would definitely make the command line
client more user friendly and anybody who thinks that is a bad thing is
not actually a user! I have a number of potential SVN users doing
embedded microprocessor development who are actually going to have to be
trained on "what's a URI?"... If this could be avoided, it would be a
good thing.

I suppose that could be done. Perhaps some logic like this:

   if definitely_not_valid_url(URL):
       URL = uri_encode(URL)
   elif URL.contains('%25'):
       if not "--force_url":
          error("Can't tell if your URL is encoded or not")
   do_action(URL)
