   Dirkjan, how does Mercurial handles charsets? If I have three files in
my repository - one in utf-8, another in koi8-r, and the third in cp1251
encoding - I certainly don't want to convert them back and force, but I
want hg web interface to provide charset in the Content-Type header.

           Programmers don't die, they just GOSUB without RETURN.
