??  I was going to do it in an internal file.

Right.  How would one set the process coding system default?  `set- 
process-coding-system' sets it for a specific process.  Or would this  
be a matter of changing the (Default) Language Environment?
I'm a bit worried that changing this may have far-reaching  
consequences... A lot of processes get started by Emacs, from i/aspell  
to interpreters like Lisp...
