So, I recall Nico repeatedly pointing out that all the gettext
implementations which perform charset translation also support the
function call to turn it off. I don't recall seeing an answer to this

Given that stripping out the charset directive yields ugly warnings and
is presenting a portability problem, why are we doing it when there's a
better option?
