We don't know that *currently*. That could change, however. Right now, we
output UTF8 (I think, or is it native). Still, we just insert stuff in
files without knowing the encoding. So, I think we will want to add an
encoding property (or support it in the svn:mime-type) someday.

Note that I don't say it is trivial, but it should be doable.
