Actually... there is one thing I'd like to discuss.
If file-encoding is set to auto, it will inspect the buffer to decide
what to do which seems to default to '8bit' to my systems (inspecting
$encoding) when editting an empty/new file.
It would IMO be more sane to set the default based on the locale.
I have set LC_CTYPE to an UTF-8 locale exactly for that purpose.
If this is done, this still works for editting latin1/latin9 files
or ASCII files. 

What do you think?
