Good point, also made by Reiner in his reply.  But `M-x revert-buffer
RET yes RET' handles that, although it's a lot of typing unless you
define a keyboard macro for it.

Ouch, that's a tricky one.  If `C-x RET c some-fancy-coding system RET
M-x revert-buffer RET' works, you'd just have to automatically save
"some-fancy-coding-system" to make it easy to insert into the minibuffer
-- maybe in a register?
