[issue4323] Wrong encoding in files saved from IDLE (3.0rc2 on Windows)

New submission from André <info at orlans-amo.be>:
When saving a source file with non-ascii characters from an IDLE window,
on Windows platform (XP and Server 2003 at least)
with locale English US
IDLE prompts in IOBinding.py with the message
"non Ascii found, yet no encoding declared, Add a line like # -*-
coding: cp1252 -*-"
If accepted, the file is saved with the wrong encoding.
Afterwards, it is read back by IDLE without any problem and it looks
good in the IDLE window.
However, if a string with non-ascii characters is sent to another
module (i.e. email MIMEText)
the string is wrong.
The same source would be rejected by python in terminal mode and by
IDLE on Linux.
