Hm... I think that for right now we should just document that inserted
keywords are in 7-bit ASCII (or the ASCII subset of UTF8 if it makes
everyone feel better). Not sure I want to go down the road (just yet)
of recognizing the character set and encoding of each versioned file.
My gut instinct is that behind those gates lies pain and suffering,
more so than we want to bear pre-1.0.
