Currently it uses UTF-8 internally but I would say it’s an
implementation detail (1.x used UTF-16 for better compatibility with
NSString and friends).

If they won’t support this, we could add support to `mate` but I would
prefer to keep it as an extension of the current `-l/--line` syntax,
e.g. `--line +42` to indicate a byte offset of 42.
