What's the rationale for this change?  The purpose of the old code was
quite transparent; changing it to use last-coding-system-used is not
obvious, and deserves at least a comment.  (And I think the use of
last-coding-system-used leads to the "strange phenomenon" mentioned

All this makes me more dubious about adding this code now.  We should
either make this entire change conditional on win32 (hedious as the
resulting code might be) or simply postphone it for Emacs 22.2.
