New submission from Serhiy Storchaka:

There are 6 encodings used in supported by glibc locales:

ARMSCII-8 - Armenian encoding
EUC-TW - Taiwan encoding in EUC family
GEORGIAN-PS - Georgian encoding
KOI8-T - Tajik encoding in KOI family
RK1048 - Kazakh variation of CP1251
TCVN5712-1 - Vietnam encoding

All these encodings are rare nowadays, but the fact that they are supported as encoding of official glibc locales means that they were used in some places in some time and there are some documents in these encodings. May be they are used even nowadays. I think it is worth to add support of all this encodings in Python.

This is a meta-issue. There are requests for support of GEORGIAN-PS (issue19459) and TCVN5712-1 (issue21081).
