This is a tricky issue; from what I can see of a quick read of
the JLS, it says that source files should be Unicode; but that's
not useful here because it doesn't seem to specify the encoding.
Anyways, if the OpenJDK compiler derives "ASCII" from LANG=C
that's wrong. By default, it should assume input files are UTF-8.
I guess the Python people made the same braindamaged mistake though =/
At worst, since Fedora has a policy that files in general should
be UTF-8 encoded, we could carry a javac patch that assumes UTF-8.
Some more information here:
It actually makes sense since Java works with Unicode by design.
Please cc me on the javac bz.
