We need to support at least Latin-1, for backwards compatibility.
One possibility is to run iconv as a preprocessor. Alternatively, call iconv directly from the compiler. What about Windows? Should there be a pragma specifying encoding, or take it from the locale, or a command-line flag, or all three?
