[sword-devel] Output text encoding for Windows MOD2IMP ?

Is there a reason why the text encoding for the output of the Sword (1.6)
Windows utility MOD2IMP is not Unicode?

I just tried 

mod2imp FreCrl >FreCrl.imp.txt

and found the text file was encoded as Windows 1252: Western European.

It would be much more sensible for the output to be encoded as UTF-8.

btw.  Does the *nix version behave the same way?
