I still not found time to revive my patches to Netatalk to use the same
approach as Samba uses w.r.t. charsets so that it would be working with
any iconv encodings, including UTF-8. We have this working in 1.5 but I'd
like to finish this for current version.

And with recent patch for CP932 for glibc support of Japanese could be
considered working.
