Yes. Did you read ntoes/diff-encodings.txt? This is not "the complete
solution". We need a reasonable fallback when the file has no encoding
information (like all or most don't have today). I am implementing that in
the first step.

But, when I have your attention;), could you clarify the difference
between the output encoding and the locale encoding on Windows? For our
normal output, such as messages, we use the output encoding (i.e. console
code page). Is that what oyou want to do for diffs as well?
