Yeah, probably.  But I'm not sure what the "right" solution should be
for that case.  I suppose I could insert mhbuild directives labelling the
text as having a particular character set, but I don't see how to tell
the editor that I'm using a different character set.  There's a reason
I was suggesting putting this script in contrib, after all 😼.
