Just try my patch. As usual, pipermail will count the number of articles by
encoding, and select the majority encoding as the encoding of the index. All
messages in other encodings will be converted to that encoding. If conversion
fails, HTML character references are emitted. It requires a codec for all
encodings but the majority encoding.

Look Ma, no UTF-8.
