I don't know that for sure, I just think it's very reasonable, because
it seems that gettext's charset handling in whole is a GNU invention. If
you check other gettext manapges you find no mention of any charset
handling. A reasonable idea would be to assume this is true until the
first bug report comes, claiming otherwise. There's always time to
complicate things later. =)
