If this aspect wasn't discussed before, it's probably a good idea to 
discuss that now.

Personally, I think emacs-mule is not a good idea in this case, since 
mbox is not Emacs-private format, so some other software should be able 
to read it.  A good alternative would be to encode each message as what 
the charset= header says (and add/fix such a header if there is none, or 
if the one that's there lies).
