OK, I'm basically done with implementing =encoding in Pod::Simple 
now.  There was a weird little bug with iso-2022-jp (a Japanese encoding) 
but Jarkko just helpfully verified for me that the bug disappeared sometime 
between my 5.8.0 version, and his on-hand 5.9 version.

There's one little (probably safely ignorable) bug involving one of the 
Arabic encodings, but I think that's about it.  Once I get back from OSCon 
(about the 16th) I'll try to release a new version of Pod::Simple 
incorporating this new =encoding stuff plus some other nice patches Graham 
Barr sent me for making Pod::Simple::HTML a bit smarter.
