And bravely assume they are all UTF8?

It does, but it's done at the build engine level, when it's a bit late to
go back and create new targets.

You seem to be moving the goals, though. What problem are you actually
trying to solve? What libraries in Boost want to use UTF8 sources, and
for what purposes? Will those libraries work on compilers that have no
way of parsing UTF8 files?
