Qt source is handled by a variety of tools, not only compilers.

Nowadays they kind of all kind of always support kind of UTF-8, yeah, so
use it, if it works. Fine.

But I absolutely don't get the point of trying to run with my head into
a wall because I know there is a door in the wall on the construction
drawing in this place, even if my eyes tell me it's a couple of feet to
the left.
