Sounds good in general, but I'm wondering whether we should worry about
the presence of abbrevs which include bytes (aka eight-bit-chars).
Using `utf-8-emacs' should fix those issues, but would then bump into
the problem that such abbrev files wouldn't be compatible with Emacs-22.



so maybe not hard-code it, rather have a variable?
