Actually, I very much doubt that.  We still silently use the preferred
encoding if the original one doesn't fit.

This is a rare use case.  It's possible that just saying

  (prefer-coding-system 'latin-1)

is all that's needed to get the required prompt back.

I think we should also welcome a patch to provide a user option that
will always force the prompt.
