ucs-tables is installed in the RC branch and will thus be part of Emacs-21.3.
It is not turned on by default, tho.  I think it's safe to turn on
unify-8859-on-encoding-mode (as is done on the trunk), but I'll let
others judge.
After all, it's supposed to be a bug-fix release and this is
not quite a bug-fix in that things work as designed (it's just
that the design doesn't do what the user wants).
