This patch most likely breaks localization of this text and I'm not sure if we should really
change the examples to show the quoting. If this is a cmd.exe requirement I don't think we
should perform the escaping as there are more ways to run svn than just from cmd.

Adding some note suggesting the quoting after the main help text might be more appropriate
and this would be easier to localize.
