Probably, but I don't know what internal or external requirements our

Yikes, weeks of extra work for little benefit is the last thing I
want. You've done nice work, but I really don't want to ask for
anything more than a few minutes of your time.

cp853 is fine for me, and GNU iconv and Mined both support it. But
some others don't officially support such translation mappings (e.g.
GNU Emacs, Unicode). So the next best thing is Latin-3 (ISO 8859-3,
aka ultra-rare cp913).

It's not a major problem, just a minor nit overall that hasn't been
solved to my (arbitrary) satisfaction yet.
