I'm no Mule guru.  I'm sorry to say that I'm at the end of my rope
now.  I know that this behavior was intentional, though: the Emacs
21.1 and 21.2 support for UTF-8 is still less than perfect, so UTF-8
was deliberately left out of autodetection.  I don't know what needs
to be done to enable it.

[time passes]

Aha, the CVS version of Emacs also does not auto-detect UTF-8
properly (tested with Markus Kuhn's UTF-8-demo.txt).

An alternative to the coding cookies is file-coding-system-alist.
