[plt-scheme] Encodings

I am currently developing a piece of software using MzScheme and  
DrScheme. Since it is in French, I use some accents.

Currently, DrScheme understands them properly when I use the Latin-1  
encoding. However, I read that v300 will only accept Unicode, which  
means my program will be invalid since it will not be UTF-8 compliant.

Is there a plan to support multiple encodings (like Emacs or Jikes), or  
will I have to convert all my accents to UTF-8 for v300? Or maybe is  
there another way to make my code run under both v207 and v300 (other  
than removing accents ;))?
