I did it once, because I didn't realise it would cause problems, and
it continues to bite me today.

To be fair - SVN can handle all sorts of non-ASCII characters, spaces,
etc. so I didn't think that punctuation would be problematic. They're
valid on any filesystem in current use, and I write hook scripts in
Python, so string processing doesn't fall over with odd characters.
