Yup. The 'apr-iconv' project. But that is really about an iconv()
replacement. I think most of your focus would be in apr_xlate since APR will
use the glibc iconv for you.

[ honestly, though, I'm not sure of apr-iconv's status; it also does not
  look like it is really hooked into apr_xlate right now ]

Just make sure to check the error return values. apr_xlate_open() is going
to return an error if the translation cannot be performed (e.g. you're on a
platform where iconv isn't present).

Cool!
