I don't know.

Part of the issue is that the software has to do it, not the user.
The reason is that the terminal I/O machinery may pick one encoding,
while the file system may pick a different one. Or one client OS may
do it one way while another OS does it a different way. In either
case, the svn client and server have to do the normalizing.
