I posted a follow up to this patch about a simplification that I think
works just as well.  I've now committed all the changes to the
archiver than I think is necessary to get it to properly behave when
the charsets of the content is different than the charsets of the

But this stuff always makes my brain hurt and I'm not 100% sure I've
gotten everything right, or everything that's needed.  Could someone:

- Please double check all the changes that are in the archiver in
  current cvs.  I think what's there will become beta5 unless
  something comes up in the next few hours.

- Are there any other changes to the archiver needed to resolve the

  close it.
