yep, I looked at that and it should work fine with Samba. One of the
reasons I was happy to go with a iconv based system was that I knew
that library was available. I didn't want to rely on it though, which
is why I did the mini-iconv inside Samba.

I'd be happy to have a option like that, it would make it a bit easier
to use libiconv
