It is currently only done for the range 0xC0 - 0xFE, so no controls.

Do you have a KOI8-R <--> Unicode mapping table that is already in
a format like

KOI8-R      Unicode
======      =======
0x80        U+....  # maybe garbage here..
0x81        U+....

I would have expected the linux kbd package to have a table like that,
but didn't find it there.  I know I could extract it from the KOI8-R RFC,
but prefer to avoid that...

With such a table, lynx could translate KOI8-R --> iso-8859-5 and vice
versa (except for non-Russian characters of course).
