??? Why not adding a new mode in 21.3 makes 21.3 much
less of a bug-fix only release?

Generally I agree with that we should release 21.3 as soon
as possibility.  But, the current codes of RC and HEAD both
have bugs as I wrote previously.  Some of them are related
to the new features existing only in HEAD, thus don't exist
in RC.

But, I also noticed that when one toggles
unify-8859-on-decoding-mode on and off,
unify-8859-on-encoding-mode also stops working, both in RC
and HEAD.  At least such a bug should be fixed.

This week I think I fixed all bugs related to
unify-8859-on-encoding-mode.  I'll try to fix bugs related
to unify-8859-on-decoding-mode this weekend.
