That sounds great.

The only issues I see is possible cvs conflicts with local modified
copies, which given the difference in charset might not be trivial to
resolve, and that translators might opt for checking in their local old
non-utf-8 copies instead (although I guess there will be a cvs trigger
that will prevent this?).

Since there are so few, could we get the list? Just to see if we'd be
affected :)
