I've written a lot of Python code but probably <1,000 source files.
Probably about 100 of those are still in use and in my care. I would
imagine that most Python users have generated less code than that.

Ah, then it should be easy. The encoding is probably the same for all of
his source files. He could probably write a simple script that inserts
the encoding (being careful to insert the encoding after the shebang
line, if present).
