Yes, from a server-side POV, you're correct. However, I believe he was
talking client side.

In which case Subversion will only deal with it if your client systems are
correctly setup: the local encoding must be able to represent the chinese
characters in order for Subversion to work correctly.

Note that this is *not* a Subversion limitation, but more a problem caused
by all the different code pages around.
