Actually, I think it was the other way around: the generated file had
the iso-2022-7bit coding tag, but included a UTF-8 encoded text from

I don't have any real evidence, I was just desperate to provide some
explanation.  I think Andreas found the _real_ reason: a stale
quail.elc.  Although, since Miles said even a bootstrap didn't help,
perhaps there's something else at work here.

Btw, since we remove leim-list.el before updating it, why does
quail-update-leim-list-file works so hard to remove some parts of it,
identify garbled lines, etc.?  Isn't all that just a waste of cycles?
