Thanks for bringing this up.  I'll check for this before converting
the Emacs source code to UTF-8.  Files that can't be converted,
I'll leave in their existing coding system, but I'll move the
"coding: WHATEVER" tag to the front as that's more convenient
for processing.

Absolutely.  We should support those files somehow.
Still, Emacs itself should set a good example, and these
days UTF-8 is the way to go unless there's a good reason
