Ouch, that was vague.... Sorry, not trying to fearmonger here.

Here is the reference, look for the important encoding note.  Seems obvious in retrospect,
but it snuck up on me despite my prior belief that I was semi-aware of transcoding issues

Just be careful if you are using filterchain/filterreplace on binary files.  Encoding issues
can end up transcoding some bytes in binary files.  Much has been written on this topic and
I would pay close attention.
