On GNU/Linux, Emacs autoloads window-12xx.  I.e. if Gnus displays an
article with charset=window-12xx, all characters are displayed
correctly.  Sometimes people use charset=cp850 or need to edit files
encoded in cpNNN.  After `M-x codepages-setup RET NNN RET' the coding
system is available.  But etc/NEWS says "`codepage-setup' is now
obsolete".  What is the correct way to setup cpNNN?

Does it make sense to add autoload statements like this (in

  (autoload-coding-system 'cpNNN '(codepage-setup NNN))

Or maybe do it for all supported codepages:

(mapc (lambda (cp)
        (setq cp (string-to-number (car cp)))
        (autoload-coding-system (intern (format "cp%s" cp))
                                `(codepage-setup ,cp)))

Bye, Reiner.
