I'm not amused to change the encoding of many haskell source files 
(particular of those that are not mine).

These files can then no longer be compiled by earlier ghcs (though I 
don't understand, how ghc-6.4.1 recognises the lexical error).

I'm tempted to replace "ä" bei "\228" in literals. What does haddock do 
with utf-8 in comments? Will DrIFT -- using read- and writeFile -- still 
work correctly?

Cheers Christian
