Please look at the code in question before starting to complain. My patch is
not only for Russian users - it provides an ability to load *any*
Unicode->single-byte-coding conversion table or even several those tables at

Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, Finnish and Icelandic [insert your own single-byte
language here] then create appropriate table and load it on mount.
