You need to find the right team mailing list for this (but I'm not
sure what it is - perhaps core-libs-dev?

It's normal practice to use ASCII for all tests; use unicode escapes
for non-ASCII characters.

jtreg folks, perhaps the encoding to use should be kept in TEST.ROOT,
since it's likely a property of the entire test directory?
