I don't see what more I can say.  What other reason is there for
adding charsets than users want or need them?  I can't remember what
charsets these were to justify each one; why do you want to get rid of
them anyhow?

I don't know why I should have to convince you anyway.  These were
probably not even ones I added.  I have added some that are of limited
interest, such as EBCDICs, but there's a point -- in the case of
EBCDIC, as an example that doesn't work properly in Mule 5.

If you don't trust me to know roughly what I'm doing, please find
someone else to do the Mule donkey work.  If you object to the whole
design, then I don't see what's basically wrong with it, and it's too
late to change it now.  It even achieves things I didn't think would
be feasible.
