There are two proposals here. One of them converts the log message to
UTF-8 at input time, the other doesn't (by default).

The repository is always storing a string of bytes. That string of
bytes might happen to be a UTF-8 encoding of something, though.

I don't know which proposal you're thinking of +1'ing :-).
