My point was not that we should discourage people from doing it, but rather
that we shouldn't worry about people who use "obsolete" settings (like
unibyte mode) since it hasn't been working well in the past anyway.

I think the new situation is actually much better since you should be
able to put something like

   (global-set-key ?é 'foobar)

directly in your .emacs, and it should just work (since by default the
keyboard-coding-system should be the same as the file's coding system).
