Automatic UTF-8 recoding in intltool-update

Since I heard from Carlos that UTF-8 will after all be required in GNOME
2, due to compability concerns with older glibcs and other libcs, I am
worried that the lack of support for UTF-8 in many regular editors (like
emacs) will be a problem for the translation work.

What about a recoding feature in intltool-update (using iconv) that will
recode the file from UTF-8 into another specified charset, and then the
possibility to reverse process after updating the file... I know I could
just as easily run iconv by hand, but with support in intltool-update it
would be one command less that I have to run.

What do you think? Am I just weird?
