Commit hook for UTF-8 BOM in ICU4C sources

Description

Add a svn commit hook for detecting the presence of a UTF-8 BOM in ICU4C source files. They are sometimes silently inserted by text editors on Windows. Perhaps they could just be silently stripped out when found.

A check that the files being committed are valid UTF-8 could also be useful. When they are supposed to be UTF-8, that is.
