I understand that.  I was just trying to add some experience about the

The generic algorithm (if you can call it that) seems usefull to me
and applicable to other email readers.  It also directly captures the
problem as I understand it, namely that some email messages are simply
mis-labeled in a fairly predictable way.

Of course for a generic solution other coding systems would have to be
considered, for those people that do not use latin-1 primarily.  I
guess in some cases the interactions may be more complicated and the
problems less predictable.

Is that a problem?  It is not a problem for me (quite the contrary),
but if it is a problem in general, an alternative implementation for
these coding systems should be created perhaps?
