That's all I ever really wanted to do, but I cannot, at least, I don't know
how to type the characters in the filename of the file in svn without
copy-paste from the svn ls terminal output on Mac OS X, which I think has
already converted the filename it just printed, so I get a file not found
error when I try to rename or delete it. It may have worked if I had ssh'd
into the RHEL server, not sure. It's a bit unclear.

I was able to simply export the files, rename the files to ascii filenames
outside of SVN, trash the containing folder from the rep, recreate it, check
it out empty, add the ascii named files, and re-commit.
