Thank you. With this information, I updated the charsets comparison
site at https://haible.de/bruno/charsets/conversion-tables/ . It turns
out that z/OS has a couple of encodings under names that we did not
guess. Also, for some encodings a non-intuitive encoding name is closer
to what one would expect. For example, "04962" is better than "IBM-866"
(see https://haible.de/bruno/charsets/conversion-tables/CP866.html).
Also, for EUC-TW there is no really suitable z/OS encoding; "IBM-eucTW"
differs too much from the standard (as measured by 'table-diff').

        iconv_open: Improve z/OS support.
        * lib/iconv_open-zos.gperf: Choose better aliases. Add mapping for
        ISO-8859-3, KOI8-R, KOI8-U, CP775, CP857, CP865, CP1129, CP1131, CP1257.
        Remove mapping for EUC-TW.
