AFAICS, the conversions that use `recode' can be rewritten to use
Emacs facilities based on Mule.  However, someone will have to write
more-or-less trivial wrappers for encode-coding-region and friends,
since we don't currently support encoding with names `ibm-pc',
`roman8', and iso646-ge.

As for iso-german and iso-spanish, they are imlpemented in iso-cvt.el.
I don't know what are the target encodings of those two, so I cannot
say whether Mule supports that.  Anybody?
