The bug is that you can currently save (almost) anything with it.  This is
due to historical reasons, where different notions of "no encoding" were
mixed up.  So on save, raw-text-unix behaves pretty much like
utf-8-mule under Emacs-23 and emacs-mule under Emacs-22.  On load, it
behaves pretty much like `binary'.
