* You want to change *every* makro and TeX construct that can have
  inputenc character as argument?
  \', \", \textbf, \textsc, _, ...
* UTF-8: The editor will display *one* character, but the
  representation can consist of several bytes.

Thus the save way is not to omit the argument braces around
active characters or macros (especially in dangerous situations
such as moving arguments).
