What source files are affected?  The idea is really that all sources
should be ASCII and all the rest UTF-8.  I think this is the decision we
came to when discussing this some time ago because some (legacy?)
compilers might possibly choke on UTF-8.  latin-1 is bad, this needs to
be fixed in any case.
