Thanks for the patch, Martin.  I think we will need something
similar to this for the Korean Windows charsets, as in all the
Korean spam I get:

Content-Type: text/html; charset=3D"ks_c_5601-1987"

We will probably need some general fallback to replace completely
unknown charsets with some safe US-ASCII text.  Do you think you could
add this?  Say, something like "(text with unknown encoding)".
