There are two changes:
1 - elimination of conditionals on (interactive-p).  Since the function
    is not interactive any more, this always returns nil anyway.
    Should be about as safe as it gets.
2 - Calling (set-buffer-multibyte nil) on existing buffers means that
    those buffers who had latin-1 chars in them now have \201,
    which is clearly wrong.  This was discussed a while back when someone
    complained about it (he had (desktop-load) before
    (standard-display-european) in his .emacs so all his desktop-loaded
    files had \201 in them) and the conclusion was that it wasn't worth
    it to try and be clever.  I think the change for accepted for 21.1
    but I forgot to install it.
