 A byte order mark is an invisible neutral character as human-readable text
 goes, but it is nonetheless a character, and therefore included in a
 computer-readable text. Supporting it wold be possible, but verly low in
 my priority list, and only if it can be done in a generic way that does
 not require changing all parts of the code that read text files.

 As a side note, you will get the same problem from a lot of other program,
 so you should definitely try to learn how to produce files with just what
 you want in them and not what any random API decides to add.
