How do I tell vile (9.6) to default to utf-8 encoding?  Or does it do
this automatically if the locale is set to utf-8?

You can put this in your .vilerc

set file-encoding=utf-8

It's set to use "auto" now, which allows it to decide whether it looks like utf-8 or not. That works reasonably well for utf-8. For utf-16,
it's harder (for that, there's the percent-utf8 setting to tweak).

I have move all my systems across to utf-8 now but I'm not yet quite
sure that I have vile working in utf-8 by default.
