Follow-up Comment #4, bug #55195 (project octave):

Might not be able to postpone this too long: work on bug #55452 has checked in
non-ASCII characters in the BIST code (e.g.
http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/ccea3574f36b) and that's probably
subject to the same encoding considerations as help strings.

There may also be an issue with assuming that doc strings are encoded in UTF-8
while the file itself is in a different encoding: text editors don't handle
files with mixed encodings. So you wouldn't be able to properly edit these
when running in a non-UTF-8 locale if the source files are in system-default
