You're right, SVN cannot know whether it is a PuTTY session or a
hostname, but that's irrelevant, because:

First, it doesn't make sense to encode blanks in hostnames either,
because hostnames (domain names) cannot contain blanks or other
characters that need encoding anyway. Even an IDNA domain name cannot
contain blanks.

Second, no matter whether a hostname could contain characters that need
to be URL-encoded, the ssh client expects just a hostname, not a URL.
Therefore the hostname should be passed from svn to the ssh client not
in an URL-encoded form, but just as it is.
