Actually, it converts to "Emacs characters" (i.e. an internal
representation).  So it's not specifically latin-1 nor utf-8, tho it was
originally mostly aimed at converting those characters covered by latin-1.

Indeed, they don't do the same thing.

I'm not sure if merging the two would really be the best option, but at
least have them share a table, so improvements to one carry over to the other.

It wouldn't hurt either.
