I wrote some C++ code translating it back to UTF-8 for error messages, but it 
is sort of roundabout, and for the future it might good to prepare for UTF-8. 
For UTF-8, it would suffice in such explicit token names that they come back 
verbatim, and thus translated into the yytname array only for characters 
(octets) that C code "..." strings can't contain:

I saw you wrote the code that does the actual translation. :-) In 
'prepare_symbols' output.c, there is a section "tname -- token names" with 
  set_quoting_style (qo, c_quoting_style);
which is perhaps the part doing the translation. Perhaps it would suffice to 
change that.
