svnlook encoding (Windows)

I finally understood how svnlooks sends his process outputs.I'm having some
troubles with this, using brazilian portuguese (pt_BR) special chars( , ,
, etc.)

Svnlook "log" allways throws his output in ANSI codepage (using iconv), as
configured in users regional settings "language to match language version
for non-unicode programs that you use". In my case, I set this to Portuguese
(Brazil) and svnlook spits ANSI CP850 chars.

When I commit a file in ANSI encoding, svnlook diff allways spits his output
in the machine's default codepage (In my english-windows, Windows1252. It
don't respect the regional settings). If the commited file is in utf-8
encoding, svnlook diff spits utf-8 chars... If in the same commit I have to
different files, one in ANSI, other in UTF-8, I'll never get the stdout in a
uniform way....

Is there any command-line switch, feature or configuration to make svnlook
allways send the same char encoding? I think some --utf-8 switch will be
very helpfull... can it be a feature request?
