I've just read the code added by Dave (sorry for not doing
that earliear).  It seems that it doesn't have a major
problem, but I found one problem related to handling unibyte

If unify-8859-on-decoding-mode is on, for instance, in
latin-2 lang. env., 8859-2 characters files are decoded into
latin-iso8859-1 and mule-unicode-0100-24ff.  But, C-q XXX
still inserts latin-iso8859-2 characters.

And, when we paste mule-unicode-0100-24ff characters into
unibyte buffer, or paste unibyte string into a multibyte
buffer, they are not correctly converted.
