I think this should be done by WAKomEncoded instead of WAKom. WAKom is
supposed to do no conversion at all and thus effectively deals with
byte arrays rather than strings.

Like said before, for some people it's perfectly ok to have raw utf-8
(or whatever encoding) strings in the image. Others even want it that

The problem is that this is not at all portable. I will only work on
Squeak 3.9 with Kom. No other Squeak, not other Smalltalk, no other
http server.
