Ah... (you have to admit speaking of that as "this is already
implemented" was a bit confusing).

Yeah, I remember you posting that and me thinking "wow, that looks
useful"; and now that I actually tried it, I'm all for its inclusion.

[it does seem to have some rough edges -- e.g. when I tried browsing the
`ucs' charset, I got `(error ("Can only list 1- and 2-dimensional
charsets"))'; or the weird 8x and 9x ranges in iso-8859-2]
