The current Emacs still don't unify Unicode and the other
legacy charsets (e.g. iso-8859-2, jisx0208, gb2312)
automatically.  So, for instance, if iso-8859-2 characters
arrive at Emacs with UTF8_STRING, they are decoded into the
charset mule-unicode-0100-24ff and treated differently
(e.g. in searching) than the characters of the charset
