As far as I know, Boris Popov was working on iconv() support.
I see he is cc:'d, so I happily await his ideas/statusupdate.
Furthermore, even though I only use special characters for Dutch,
German, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, Finnish and Icelandic, I feel that
_if_ we start to add Unicode support we do it right from the beginning.
Unicode was meant to solve the native character set problem for all
languages [as far as my knowledge stretches] and should not be a
working, but ugly, hack which only allows per-language solutions.
If you want to have people to have the ability to mount their CD's with
Russian characters by all means provide the patch on your website.
I am by all means not an l10n or i18n hacker nor wizard, otherwise I
would've dedicated my ample time working on this and solve it once and
for all with all other interested parties.
In short: please do it right from the start.
