Well, I intend to have a built-in converter that handles UTF-8, ISO-8859-1,
UTF-16, UCS-2 and UCS-4, because that is very easy and quite convenient as a
fallback for systems lacking proper conversion libraries. But I definitely
do not intend to embed in lavu all the tables needed to convert from/to
legacy encodings.
