They could always use iconv to convert to local codeset, edit, then
convert back to diff/commit. A bit inconvenient tho so hopefully their
editors can natively edit UTF-8. Of course I don't expect the French
to support UTF-8 well since as far as they're concerned French is the
only language in the world anyway. ;)))
