According to wiki - Unicode standard does not require or recommend BOM,
further mentioning that BOM could possibly break stuff in Unix-like systems.

I don't see the problem with adding one checkbox to options page, if this
option
solves compatibility problem with main postgres tool (psql).

If you look closer to option page there is even checkbox "Reset guru
hints",
which is much less important than checkbox "Let me run my files in psql".

What do you think?
