I see buffer-swap-text as a (very) low-level function.  So, I'd rather
let the code that uses it deal with things like
buffer-file-coding-system.  I don't think we have enough experience with
it to decide whether that variable (or any other for that matter) needs
to be swap alongside the buffer's text.
