No, chars from the latin-1 set have identical *Unicode* code points
(i.e. between 128 and 255), but their encoding into utf-8 occupies
2 bytes.

As for saving random bytes, you can't either, at least not in a way that
is supported by all utf-8 implementations.

I think raw-text is more likely to work, based on what Lars says.
