@ sign in folder/file/url and revision parser

From: Rajko Albrecht <ral_at_alwins-world.de>

I'm the author of kdesvn and I've got the following bug-report:

"Some of my directories need '@' symbols in them (as dictated by
matlab object-oriented syntax), but when using kdesvn on that
repository I get errors like "Syntax error parsing revision
'dirname'", where the directory was named '@dirname'."

So I checked it and saw it is a problem with subversion itself:

ralbrecht@br:/tmp/testco/trunk$ svn mkdir test@mathlabsyntax
  A test@mathlabsyntax
ralbrecht@br:/tmp/testco/trunk$ svn info test@mathlabsyntax
  svn: Syntax error parsing revision 'mathlabsyntax'

Searched and saw: there exists an bugreport for similar problem:

but got never fixed.

Question: will this EVER fixed? and/or will this long known issue
reported sometimes in subversion book?

For me - and I'm sure not only for me - this is a big problem. And
yes: I have no idea how this should fixed. For kdesvn itself I may
setup a workaround (kde urls always give parameters as a real url
parameter not with @ so I will translate @ to it url-encoding like
space to %20) but this can not be solutions for other clients like
commandline-svn or rapidsvn or tortoisesvn.

Any hints?
