I say it's a good thing to do *if* we are sure that the UTF8 string
encoding is good inside strings (C++ doesn't specify AFAIK, so it's more
a wx issue).

Could we also try to standardize on line ends? sadly bzr doesn't handle
automatic conversion like svn:eol-style, and diffs come out with ugly
results. Just a personal suggestion, they don't give actually much
