    No, it's an incredibly hard and heavy task.

I am surprised you think so, and this means there is some sort of
misunderstanding between us.

You've listed around 6 variables that affect the decoding.  So it
seems to me that if we make a convenient way for each Lisp file to
specify those 6 variables, we solve the problem.  It looks easy to me.

If you think it is difficult, could you explain where the difficulty
