Ok, I was actually wrong in my last message, that file with commit message should always be in the same encoding as git commitencoding. There's no weirdness.

How can it break someone's setup, if using the current system codepage
is the_only_  way of invoking programs from Emacs on MS-Windows?
Download this:
Then, from emacs -Q:
(setq vc-git-program "d:/Downloads/PortableGit/bin/git.exe")
Note that the git is used from bin, and not from cmd. Russian commits do work with this version, when vc-git-commits-coding system is utf-8. That's why I kept blaming git. So we can define breaking someone's setup - if that someone uses this old git version, forcing windows-1251 would break his setup.
1.7.9 is the last working version.

Am I missing something?
No, I just provided a practical example of:

The 2nd solution is somewhat slower, but it is better, because it will
allow to write log messages using any characters, not just those
representable in the current codepage

In the end, of course I like solution #2.
