Re: En-dash versus em-dash

Nope. Try it yourself. Put a UTF-8 literal in an imported source file, and then try to use Unicode literals for the character. It interprets the UTF-8 wrong. I'm quite sure this is a bug in our importer script, treating everything as UTF-16.

You are likely referring to:

Which has nothing actually to do with string literals, or the encoding
of the source file, but was about how gjs treats any string when passed
to a function which expects a byte array.

And note, the semantics changed for 3.8.
