.vimrc and UTF-8

Quick .vimrc config to display UTF-8 characters correctly:

" support UTF-8 automatically when not on console
if  has('gui_running') && has('multi_byte')
        set encoding=utf-8
        set fileencoding=utf-8
        set fileencodings=utf-8

Note that the gui_running requirement ensures that this will be used by gvim and by vim run from a terminal emulator (such as urxvt or mlterm), not by vim running from a virtual terminal or console.
