It needn't theoretically but my end-point is greppability so utf-8 is
wanted.  And anything that can be text should be, so 8-bit.  Anything
that can't should probably be base64.  QP is likely to be redundant if
utf-8 8-bit is available AFAICS.

Changing charset to utf-8 without the end result also being 8-bit isn't
very useful for *me*.

Cheers, Ralph.
