We need a working iconv implementation. The GNU version may be usable, but note that we already have about half (or more!) of the needed in our libc and supporting utilities. I think a new/separate implementation of iconv may be better

I think that the code Gordon attached, above, may not be his most up-to-date code. He has some code that I'd actually reviewed and I think been happy with, but he hadn't really tested. You may want to sync up with him, at least to find the state of things?

There's some reasonably complete (and somewhat tested) code here:
Reviewers recommended that it should have some tests written to
show that it works as well as the closed version. Sorry but I don't
have time to work on those tests. Volunteers?

I wrote similar code the last 2 days :( :( :( Redmine dont even send me the new comments...
I rewrote the shell script in C maybe this is of use. WIDTH and WIDTH_DEFAULT are missing, but they are also missing in localedef(1)
If i recover from my disappointment, i maybe can take a look.
