Note that this is an issue not just for XML files.  I recently added
some code to libcpp to ignore UTF-8 BOMs -- because some Windows
editors add them by default and because, supposedly, Visual Studio
requires them.

So, I think it would be nice for interoperability to handle them
properly, the same way Emacs handles different kinds of line endings.
