 anyways, you still can't override a message's charset if it was
 transformed to UTF-8 without problems - and I don't see why you'd want
 to anyway? If it was validly transformed to UTF-8 given the charset
 that the message claimed it to be in, then changing it to another
 charset is more likely to make it render badly than it is to render

+You are totally wrong - one needs ability to override charset of the message regardless of whether it was correctly transformed to utf8 or not. For example, when one writes a mail through a broken www iterface, e.g. usa.net, mail gets charset marked iso8859-1. So russian is displayed as a mess of latin1 characters most of them with umlauts. The properly implemented recoding would allow to read such mail, and mature MUAs like Mozilla and Outlook Express have this functionality implemented and working correctly.
