I'd say that in the long run Unicode and its
most useful encoding, UTF-8, is going to be the most
widespread. At the very minimum, mc should be usable
on pure UTF-8 systems (systems whose terminals and

Regarding displaying texts in various encodings:
GNU recode is still available, don't try to do
all things for all people at once.
