That's not right. If I do a text conversion from Windows to Mac, I would
want to source to use the CP-1522 locale, and the output the MAc-Roman
locale. If I have a file in French, and a file in Chinese, I want one to
be treated as French, and the other as Chinese.

If this can't be done, I don't need locale's. I'll make my own kludges
thank you very much.
