This would be difficult, because of the way, string literals are managed in
cc65. Since not all string literals need translation (think about the asm()
statement for example), so string literals are collected in something called
the literal pool, and translated at the latest possible moment (when the pool
is output to the file). For such a #pragma, the compiler would have to
remember for all string literals, which offsets do contain characters that
must remain as they are. Using the approach detailed in my last mail ("abuse"
wide strings for untranslated literals) only minor changes are necessary.
