This is general method of telling kernel how to convert names from Unicode
to any local charset, not particulary to Russian one. Anybody feel free to
add their own single bytes charsets tables.
Yes, it is a per-FS hack, but until iconv or something like will be
integrated, some hack needed just to read CDs selling at nearby shop.

Japanese etc. is _very_ different and needs tons of efforts even when
implemented like similar hack, we currently talk about and limited to
single bytes charsets only.
We have almost full single bytes charset localization in the
kernel/userland, so this step is next logical extention in that direction.
I can't say something like about double bytes charsets like Japanese etc.
