that's the ultimately user-unfriendly solution.
the *right* solution would be having a list of skins, ordered by
decreasing demands on the charset. mc would automatically use the first
skin whose characters are all available (judging by code page -
incomplete fonts are a different matter: if someone chooses to use
one, he may be required to configure something by hand).
