I'm with Bill here. While basically working, this approach is not as
robust as it could be. It's possible to fool it, by using things like
ISO-646-whatever for example. (I don't seriously expect anyone to use
any ISO-646 variant other than ISO-646-US novadays, that was in the
time before ISO-8859, but it still feels a little flakey.) My
intention for the --disable-utf8 variants was as a transitory measure
while we iron out the problems with the real code. It was never meant
to stay.
