good idea but it's unusable as some systems do not have iconv but need
charset-convertion. what we would need is: a) a configure check for
iconv [iconv.h, iconv_t, iconv(), iconv_open(), iconv_close()] _and_
a fallback solution if the system lacks iconv.

another note: the 1.4.x is 'frozen', new features should go to the
(unstable) 1.5.x branch. Jason Faultless is currently rewriting most
of the raw-article to displayable-article handling/code (mime-decoding,
etc.pp.), so if you like to work on that LOCAL_CHARSET stuff (see
notes above) you'd better talk with him (or tin-dev@tin.org) about the
