      Description

      We should have a dist check that flags any repository source file (.c,.h,.cxx,.py, etc.) having non-ASCII chars in it.

      Background: WT-7184 Added a check and modified any documentation source files that had UTF-8 (non-ASCII) characters. This plays havoc with parsers using some versions of Python. Keith Bostic pointed out that we should really not have non-ASCII in any WiredTiger sources.
