Summary: Recode pipermail templates

Initial Comment:
This patch transparently recodes the pipermail
templates and messages if the article and index files
have a different encoding than the template language If
necessary, HTML character references are generate. If
recoding fails, it will proceed without exception, but
produce garbage.

For messages, this uses a method self._, which first
invokes _, then does the recoding. This makes it
necessary for _ to go back more than one frame, so the
number of frames is now an optional parameter
(defaulting to 1).

Feel free to shoot holes in this, but I think it might not
be simpler to just get rid of the multiple _charsets stuff
in HyperArch.HyperArchive.  Say we always encode the indices
pages with the character set of the list's preferred
language, except that we also html-ify any bogus characters
outside that charset.  Seems to me we can chop a bunch of
code and still get the results we want, even if at the
expense of potentially bigger pages (which I don't care about).

I'm going to commit some changes and test them out on the
playground list.  This seem to work well here for my test lists.

Semi-related: would PEP 293 allow us to get rid of
