My issue with this is that you have now hard-coded the fact that
everyone else is going to use UTF-8. Yes, it most likely won't affect
any compilation or tests (or even 90% of users), but I do not agree that
this is the best way to fix the problem. I still contest that setting
the desired encoding (via the appropriate JVM property like Bill Slacum
initial suggested) is the proper way to address the issue.

I don't feel like we ever actually came to a consensus on this discussion.
