Setting "unix charset" to anything other than UTF-8 is very likely
broken at the moment. We don't really have tests for operating with
non-UTF8, and there are a couple of places where data that is guaranteed
to be in UTF-8 is not converted back to the unix charset and vice versa.

For the moment we should probably at least print a warning if the unix
charset is specified by the user.
