It is the mailing for users of Groovy. I think you are perfectly right here.

Maybe a stupid question, but how do you set the encoding for a text file 
to UTF8 without using the BOM? Problem of text files is, that they do 
not contain the encoding information. So if all files are expected to be 
UTF8 and you are on a non-UTF8 system, then there might be problems.

The expected encoding is UTF8 in all cases.
