Use UTF-8 by default for C++ source files

.cpp and .h files should be saved in a modern encoding such as UTF-8 by default (and the compiler would have to be updated to handle UTF-8 input as well). The use of the windows-1252 codepage really feels like something out of the 1980's. The rest of the world uses Unicode. Heck, as far as I know, most other VS project types use it. Can we *please* get the same in Visual C++?
