While I agree that having it just be unicode simplifies matters,
couldn't doing the translation again pretty easily be made a
customisable "read-quoted-char-use-locale-coding-system" boolean ?

... but should that be
read-quoted-char-use-buffer-file-coding-system  ?
- i.e. if you open an iso8859-15 file, and "C-q a4" (assuming hex radix)
, you get a euro sign inserted?

- it just strikes me people with non unicode locales (or files)
are  some of the most likely to want to enter characters by number from
the relevant non-unicode charset...
