Hyeshik Chang, who opened this issue, wrote (msg83672) "When I asked Taiwanese developers how often they use these character sets, it appeared that they are almost useless in the usual computing
environment in Taiwan. This will only serve for a historical
compatibility and literal standard compliance. (...)"
I don't think that Python is the right place to support such encoding. Eg. a patch for iconv would be a better idea (if iconv doesn't support this encoding yet).
I close this issue as "wont fix".
resolution: -> wont fix
