This may be true for Japanese but e.g. for most western users Netatalk will
write cap encoded MacRoman by default. I don't see how this could be useful
for samba.

This is already being worked on, as we need it for AFP3 support anyway.
Iconv is not much help, as it does not provide round trip encoding for most
mac charsets.
Any help appreciated :-)
