My opinion is that the Modem service (or SMS service or whatever) should
handle the charset internally and convert from UTF-8 to the best that
the hardware supports.  Since everything coming over D-Bus is UTF-8 by
definition, there's no point to exposing that charset functionality
publicly since you can't send the modem service anything that's _not_
UTF-8.  The modem service will have to convert internally no matter
