Converting line endings corrupts ISO-8859-1 files when platform encoding is UTF-8
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: MASSEMBLY-371
                 URL: http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MASSEMBLY-371
             Project: Maven 2.x Assembly Plugin
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 2.2-beta-2
         Environment: Linux with platform encoding set to UTF-8
            Reporter: Håvard Wigtil
         Attachments: assembly-encoding.zip

Converting line endings for a text file encoded in ISO-8859-1 replaces any character in the
set above ASCII with the three characters ᅵ.
What happens is that the file to be converted is read as text in the platform encoding (seems
to be method readFile in class FileFormatter), and when the platform encoding is UTF-8, any
non-ASCII character from ISO-8859-1 is converted to the UTF-8 character "&#65533;" (i.e.
the placeholder for unknown / broken character). 

I've attached a small sample project that shows this problem on Linux with platform encoding
set to UTF-8.

I see two possible fixes for this, one is to read the file as bytes and do a search /replace
for line endings, and the other is to be able to specify encoding for a fileset or file.
