I recompiled Emacs today and found that "Windows-1251" language
environment is gone.  This is definitely a wrong decision.  Maybe you
removed it because you dislike Windows (me too, i don't use it) -- i
don't know, but by far the most of russian speakers use `cp1251'
codepage and i and many others have to cooperate.

It was not hard for me to hack `language/cyrillic.el' and return that
language environment, but i ask you to revert the change in the Emacs
CVS tree.

I think this message explains that change.  Also, please report CVS Emacs bugs
to address@hidden, not here (address@hidden).

This coding system was implemented differently that the others.  A
buffer with symbols from iso-8859-5 character set can not be saved
using CP1251 (although iso-8859-5 is a subset of CP1251).  There was
no support for cp1251 fonts and no mime-charset.  I haven't given much
thought about this, I simply reimplemented this coding system the same
way as the other Cyrillic coding systems are implemented.

During this I renamed this coding system from windows-1251 to cp1251
(the first stays still as an alias).  Reason: the name CP1251 is used
by Glibc and GNU utilities (includingly gettext), this name is what
most people are used to and will expect from Emacs.

This patch doesn't include a generic language environment for CP1251.
I will make such an environment latter since CP1251 is widely used for
several languages.
