Obviously not judging by your reaction. I beleive the mappings from the standard encodings to the DOS/Windows codepages are all correct, but the codepages include extra characters that do not map back into the coding-systems they are aliases for. After reading a bit about the differences the only one that seems like it might be problematic is cp949, which contains "unified Hangeul", which might be in common use.

The reason for adding these aliases is to get clipboard support working out of the box on Windows easily. Even if the codepages are incomplete, it is better than the current situation of assuming latin-1 for the clipboard.
