CP437 is, for all intents and purposes, plain ASCII, which obviously
doesn't support any interesting characters. It this is a strict
(non-fuzzy) translation, then something is seriously wrong with
apr-iconv. If it's a fuzzy translation, then it's expected; IIRC that's
exactly what we do with untranslatable characters.
