I guess so. 

Note that it's not a patch, but the template to be used with gencodec.py.

The encoding is used on IBM Mainframes here in Germany 
and Austria. Mostly on "old" VM/VSE Machines. Rawdata is 
transferred via MQSeries and then encoded from "cp273" to 
"latin_1". 
 
The file has been translated from the original IBM RFC by 
myself. 
 
www.unicode.org has no equivalent file on their FTP-Servers 
(ftp://ftp.unicode.org/Public/MAPPINGS/). 
 
CP273 is an alias for this charset. source: IBM NLS RM Vol2 
SE09-8002-01, March 1990 
 
Regards 
 
Michael

Can you provide a reference of where and how this encoding
is used ?

We also need information of where the attached file originated.

Thanks.
