Hi Ildar:

Thanks for the patch.

I gather that KOI8-R is more widely used than ISO-8859-5--but you're
suggesting that the latter shouldn't even be offered as an option?

	Hi, Peter,

Historically ISO-8859-5 (almost) haven't been used in email neither for other purposes. It's useless. From the beginning russian community used KOI8-R, now KOI8-R and UTF-8 are used vaguely 50/50.

The menu choice itself is a little unobvious: I thought that it's a spell-checking choice until I looked into the source. (multipurpose)
