I got quickly over the gettext documentation and couldn't find why
these lines should be required before the file's initial headers.  I
checked the version I sent in May and found that it already had them,
but I can't remember having put them there on purpose.

I guess their presence hides the initial headers which determine the
character encoding of the file (UTF-8).  If this is correct these
lines shouldn't really be there.

Does anyone in this list know better?

Thanks.  But I'm sure it could use some improvements. :)
