Hmm, correction -- file misidentifies them as UTF16LE, when they're
actually UTF16BE.  Converting it the right way around gets me a legible 
file like so:

  # Localization file for Gammu (www.mwiacek.com) version 0.62

Why is a Unix program using UTF16BE (or UCS2BE) for its internal
representation of localization data?
