I guess the answer is only because ISO-8859-1 is the default encoding on
french boxes, and I didn't changed the default when I first start developing
Ivy. But it shouldn't be a big issue, we shouldn't have international
characters in our files except for the names. Actually we've avoided any
such trouble so far by removing accents in contributors names. IMO it's not
worth the trouble, but I don't have any accent in my name, so I'm certainly
biased :-)

So I'd prefer keeping it like it is now. For contributors names I simply
copy paste their names from JIRA. I don't know if JIRA support accents in
usernames, but I guess not, so it's a good way to filter out accents :-)
