No, its not.
There is no conversion, meaning filenames and even worse, the file content, 
are transmitted as is.
This will cause trouble if one sandbox runs on a iso-8859-1 filesystem and 
another one runs for ex. on a utf-8 fs.

Files checked out from cvs server will be encoded identical to the encoding 
they were checked in with.
