Amend that.  If I understand how all this works correctly, then
importing cjkcodecs.aliases provides direct mapping for all the
charsets.  So since we already have "import cjkcodecs.aliases" in
Mailman's paths.py, we could just delete euc-jp, iso-2022-jp, shift_jis,
euc-kr, iso-2022-kr, ks_c_5601-1987, and johab from CODEC_MAP and be
done with it.

It looks like we didn't need these aliases in CODEC_MAPS even with the
older codec packages, since they define all the aliases as well.
