Eli and Stefan know about it (the coding cookie trap).

Stephen explained pretty good what I've had in mind -- I can't do it
better than he already did.  As long as Emacs doesn't ask the user in
case of mismatching "codings" something like:

    Mismatching codings (iso-8859-1, iso-8859-2, and iso-8859-15)

    Do you want to unify these codings (default "yes")?

And then an additional dialog:

    ... unify as utf-8 or iso-8859-2?

these corruptions will happen again and again.  I strongly vote to
release Dave Love's unification fixes ASAP as Emacs 21.3.
