I've checked out CVS HEAD Emacs and found a very serious problem with cp1251.  I
really hope that this will be fixed in 22.1, as cp1251 is default coding system
in Bulgaria, very slowly being replaced with UTF-8.

1. Emacs is started with LANG=bg_BG.CP1251

2. Open new buffer for writing file

3. Some cyrillic is written with some of the cyrillyc-* input methods (I tried
cyrillic-bulgarian-* and cyrillic-yawerty)

4. Try to save the file. Although "b" appears in buffer's status line so buffer
is cp1251, a question appears for coding systems.  In the list of "safe coding
systems" there is no cp1251.  If cp1251 is specified, "?" characters appear in
