Strange, because both GIConv and e_iconv are both wrapping the same
iconv API it seems. Is there a mailing lists discussion or backlog about
these issues available?

I was thinking about leaving the e_iconv_open and e_iconv_close APIs in
tact so that the caching could still be in place, but let them return
GIConv instances (in stead of iconv_t ones).
