Feature #6679:  Default Ruby source file encoding to utf-8
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/6679

Let's change the default encoding for Ruby source files from US-ASCII
to UTF-8 in Ruby 2.0

 Convention over Configuration
 Ruby 1.9 forced encoding for code that was not pure ASCII, so
existing codebase already has magic comments.


In Ruby 2.0, "# encoding: utf-8" can be the default.
