>Summary: Oscar offline messages - cannot send/receive non-latin chars

Initial Comment:
There is a problem with oscar offline messages in some
national encodings. I'd like to suggest a way to fix that.

Offline messages in Oscar don't contain an information
about encoding, and the encoding from the "Advanced"
page in the oscar account options is used, which is
"ISO-8859-1" by default.

Due to that offline messages in some languages are not
converted into UTF-8 correctly. For example "CP1251"
should be used for Russian messages.

What I suggest is to get the default value for that
encoding from user locale:

Method #0 (Windows-only):
        char encoding[10]="CP";
                we have a proper encoding  here!

Method #1 (universal):
        Use setlocale(LC_CTYPE,0) (provided that the right
locale has been set before) and then parse what is
there after the period in the returned string.

Maybe init_plugin in oscar.c is a proper place for that...
