    We discussed the issue several times (e.g. under the subject
    "lisp/ChangeLog coding system"); 

I did not recognize the issue because you said "a 'secure' encoding"
and that is not a term we normally use.

    Well, in the version (mid-January, maybe?) of GNU Emacs I have, when I
    tried saving a buffer with mixed ascii, latin-1, and latin-2 in it, it
    gave me an abominably long list of coding systems including mule
    internal, all the -with-esc systems, and iso-2022-jp-2.  But all of
    the characters used in the buffer are in ISO-8859-2, it's just Mule
    making false distinctions.

The current development version of Emacs enables
unify-8859-on-encoding-mode; does that solve this problem?
