Hi,

since several days, the HD44780 contains a 'none' charmap, which does
not map any characters. This is the same as your AS-IS charmap.

For the other ones I am not yet convinced to commit them. Up to now we
assume that everything the server received is in ISO8859-1 and map that
on the output side. Your patches assume that something different than
ISO8859-1 arrives on the input side and map that to the same output charset.

Starting with a patch like this, we may end up with (m*n) mappings (m =
input charset, n= output charset). I would like to hear other people's
comments on this.

Regards,
Markus
