If your hostname is not UTF-8, how is Subversion to know what character encoding it's using? It seems to me it's a bug (of your OS) to present a non-UTF-8 string (or possibly even a non-ASCII string) as a valid hostname. (My thought is that if a non-ASCII hostname is desired, the UTF-8 representation of the hostname should be encoded in punycode  by the OS. But maybe that's just me.)
