Hi,

On Windows you'd use a double-carret to quote it, i.e:

$ svn rm -m "fancy message goes here" ^^/A/B/C/file.txt

Could you explain why you'd want to do a server-side operation
on something which is locally accessible? I.e. why not do?

$ cd A/B/C
$ svn rm file.txt
$ svn commit -m "Another fancy message"

/D
