[erlang-questions] unicode in string literals

The thing that puzzles me about Erlang assuming that source files are in
Latin 1 is that I have a tokenizer for Erlang that assumes Latin 1 and
in every Erlang/OTP release I've checked there has been at least one
file it tripped up on because of UTF-8 characters.

When can we expect -encoding('whatever'). to be supported?
