No, I'm not suggesting that it should be omitted. The environment
variables should be set *only* if the output is captured. So, it must
be done only in the script that will call svn, not by definining some
general svn wrapper.

Moreover, for portabability reasons, only C or POSIX is guaranteed
to work. In particular, "en_US.<preferred charset>" (what has been
suggested) is incorrect on Maemo 4, where only en_US exists. But
svn will not use UTF-8 with the C/POSIX locale.

So, really, svn should provide an option that will select a UTF-8
