Éric Araujo <merwok at netwok.org> added the comment:
I agree about the need to define the encoding for comments. My vote goes to #2, since I wouldn’t want to see names of authors/contributors mangled in the source. I would reconsider if a specification explicitly forbade that.
I repeat that the title of this bug is misleading: untabify does not fail with non-ASCII bytes, it failed because of invalid bytes.
