As far as I understand this is correct: Subversion
does (IMO) the smart thing, and does try to outsmart
its users. Thus, it doesn't try to do automatic
linefeed conversion, for example, and I wouldn't
expect it to try to do encoding changes either.

For what it's worth, I would recommend using Unicode
quoting within Source code strings for any
non-7bit-ascii characters. Comments are bit trickier,
although with Javadoc comments one can use xml/html
character entities (as they are usually rendered to be
viewed using browser).
