| Several days ago I got a CD with Russian filenames on it and discovered that
| I'm unable to read those filenames. After some hacking I produced a patch,
| which should solve this problem in the manner similar to what we have in
| msdosfs module (i.e. user-provided conversion table). I have to emphasize that
| it's a temporary solution until we will have iconv support in kernel.
| Please somebody review attached patches.

Please do not assume Unicode.  I18N/L10N efforts have been crying for
programmers to *not* and *never* assume *anything*.  :)

Also, this belongs more on -i18n more than anything else.  I really
do not want to generate all the traffic on -i18n alone.. :)

Have you seen ports/chinese/big5fs?  Japanese/Korean do the same thing too
You could simply make a port of this that loads KLD's.  This enables us 
to have the support without having hacks in src/sys.  I talked
to Boris at length about this.  And I think this would be the best way
to implement "temporary" hacks.

As to the progress of iconv, we should have it soon, as soon as
itojun and I work out how to import either the Citrus code
or Konstantin's code. 

If you make this a port, I say "go for it." :) If you wish to commit
to src/sys, I have strong doubts about this.  I hope you do not
mind my bluntness about this, as I really want to express the feelings.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year,
