The UTF8 signature at the start of source files confuses
docutils.

If a source document starts with a title - e.g.

==================
Hello this is a Title
==================

*but* the document also starts with the UTF8 signature
(BOM), then docutils no longer recognises the title.

It would be more correct to check for the UTF8 signature
(and other BOM ?) and remove if found.

    BOMs are automatically removed from the input stream since
    Docutils 0.3.8.

    Please install the most current snapshot from
    <http://docutils.sourceforge.net/docutils-snapshot.tgz>.
    Should the problem persist with the snapshot, please re-open
    this bug report and provide an input file which shows the
    problem.
