I think it might be OK to do it for Emacs-25, but since Emacs-22 can't
handle utf-8-emacs, I think it's a bit early to switch to it in
Emacs-24.  If utf-8 is sufficient, OTOH it's the best choice.  So maybe
we should check the buffer first to see if utf-8 is safe, and only fall
back to emacs-mule if utf-8 is not safe.
