OK. I thought that encoding means module encoding. That is said
nowhere clearly.

I didn't have proper modules so I tweaked some .conf files. This
reveales again the same kind of bug in diatheke/sword which was with
localized keys. If the list of the module descriptions is concatenated
the result is mixed utf8 and 8859-1 (or cp1252). Maybe it should be
automatically utf8 if it's supported?

Or all .conf files could be converted to utf8. Is there a reason to
support cp1252?

Good. Still I wonder why we need rtf at all in conf files.
