I don't think that revert-buffer should autodetect at all. For the few
cases where it matters, find-alternate-file with the same file name is
probably an acceptable replacement. Or even better, set the
buffer-file-coding-system to the desired coding system and save the file
from within Emacs, instead of reencoding it outside of Emacs.
