Its more complicated than that. Commit objects are usually in utf-8,
unless a repository configuration setting told you otherwise, or an
encoding header appears in the commit. And sometimes that data lies
anyway. ISO-8859-1 is one of the safer forms of reading a commit, but
that also isn't always accurate.
