This is a generalization, and as such, just does not hold true for all
cases.  I happen to be working with UTF-8 files that do not contain,
and never will contain, problem characters... I check them in as text
with no issues whatsoever, and gain the advantage of being able to use
cvs diff to difference revisions and the working copy - I enjoy not
having to use yet another another differencing tool.
