AFAIK, all you need to do is get rid of the BOM, which is redundant in
UTF-8 anyway.  I have no problems at all using UTF-8 encoded string
constants in OCaml, and Camomile's UTF8 module then handles them
seamlessly.  YMMV.

(There is one minor issue, which is that there are legal OCaml
identifiers which become illegal when the file is encoded in UTF-8 --
namely those that use accented letters.)
