    It's the opposite of unification. In this context it can mean two
    different things:


    1. Undo the effects of `unify-8859-on-decoding' mode. That is, wenn
       decoding some encodings like cyrillic or some ISO 8859 encodings,
       then decode them to characters from appropriate mule charsets (e.g.
       `greek-iso8859-7') rather than to characters from the charset
       `mule-unicode-0100-24ff'. This is the default.

Don't you mean "Don't perform the actions of `unify-8859-on-decoding'

    2. When decoding UCS encodings like UTF-8, decode characters from
       certain reperoires, e.g. "Greek", to different mule charsets like
       `greek-iso8859-7'. The default is to decode them all to characters
       from `mule-unicode-0100-24ff'. A user can turn this behaviour on by
       customizing `utf-fragment-on-decoding'.

That one isn't relevant to the problem we need to solve now.
