I host few Russian mailing lists. Cyrillic (as some other locales) uses few
different charsets. I have a master list to which al postings are done,
which then redistributes the mail to sub-lists, converting the mail for each
one to corresponding charset. This way I also handle auto-transliteration
for those who doesn't have cyrillic fonts.
This approach may be relevant for other internationalized mailing lists, so
may be we should think about generalized system of conversion filters,
configurable per list.
Its make majordomo aware of this, since it will be much more performance
efficient - no need to invoke multiple perl's as it is done when the filter
is invoked from aliases file.
