I am not happy about this, and in general I think it is the wrong way to
go. Eg. all my own tools for translation are using other charsets than
UTF-8, and also, if the best charset for the source, according to a
specific translator, would be something else than utf-8, and cvs is a
source control system, then the cvs repository should store the source,
and not something derived from the source.
