Re: [PATCH] Unicode Lisp reader escapes

    So, disabling character translation on reading an iso-2022
    *.el file effectively stabilize the byte-compiling of the
    file without any actual problem.

Ok, I am convinced that disabling character translation is a good
solution _mechanism_.  The remaining question is what user interface
to use.  That is, how should Emacs determine that it should set
enable-character-translation to nil for these files?

One obvious way is an explicit specification of the variable
enable-character-translation.  But that would be cumbersome to use.

Another way is that specification of coding: together with mode:
emacs-lisp could do this automatically.

Another way is that you could specify coding: in a special way,
perhaps with ! at the end of the coding system name.

What do you think?
