Subversion stores log messages and filenames in the repository in
UTF-8, but does not recode the contents of your files; they're stored
in the repository with exactly the bytes you sent. Log messages and
filenames are encoded to/from your local system's standards in
accordance with the LANG environment variable, or equivalent.
