I've thought about that, too. However, I usually have different
documents open with kile, some of which might be utf-8, while others are
latin1. In that scenario I guess the setting will win that happens to
apply to the first opened document.

Maybe the 'best' approach would be to use different editors for either
documents. Though, this is not as elegant as I hoped for...

if [ `pwd` = $MY_DIR ] ; then
	LANG=... editor2 $@
	editor1 $@
