I totally agree with user configurable. At present configure has the
"--charset-default=XYZ" option, which is the logical choice for this,
though I do have a minor concern. Since iconv() tries to convert
_from_ any charset _to_ any other, why not have:
to allow full flexibility. I suggest US-ASCII because it's consistent
with the RFC's. Realistically, you're probably right. With most of
the world's computers running Windoze, windoze-1252 is reasonable.
However it bothers me to have a windoze charset be _our_ default.
Having both options also allows personal preferences. I know some of
our cyrillic users have CP866 and KOI8-R as their default charsets.
Perhaps those would be useful as their default-to-charset. Maybe so,
maybe not :-)
