Re: [PATCH] replace 0xA0 to whitespace in plain text files (part 2)

> Replace broken unicode sequence to whitespace in the plain text files.

It's hardly fair to call these "broken unicode sequences" when there's
no particular reason to think that those files' contents are supposed
to be Unicode.  Most likely, I'd say, they're Latin-1 non-break-space
characters, and calling them "broken unicode" makes about as much sense
as calling a bicycle a broken car.

Not that replacing them with ASCII spaces isn't a good idea.  I just
don't think the terminology is fair.
