Because LANG isn't "the native encoding", but, for the file system
the "naive encoding".

What encoding is used in the file system is a property of the
file system or even individual directories and files, but certainly
not of the terminal session I'm using to do the checkout.

(And if you think that LANG should apply to file names on disk,
why would you think it should not do so for the file names that
come from the svn server in the checkout?)
