I think that if SQL COLLATE gets in we'll get this almost for free.
Collation and charset are both properties of strings. Once you've got a
mechanism to know the collation of a string, you just attach the
charset to the same place. The only difference is that changing charsets
requires recoding, wheres changing collation does not.

I think it'd just become a special case of the Relabel node.
