Subject New charset support breaks existing app charset/utf8 support
Date Sun, 17 Apr 2005 17:42:56 GMT

after updating to yesterday's unstable branch, the existing UTF-8 support in 
my application doesn't work anymore, which is probably since apreq2 does its 
own decoding now, and decoding twice fails.

With no documentation yet, I don't know what exactly apreq does, but is 
there a way to switch it all off? If there isn't, there probably should be, 
since my app won't be the only one that's affected by this.

Also, apreq is probably wasting performance by doing more charset guessing 
(?) than necessary for my app, which knows the charset/encoding, and 
therefore only needs to call utf8::decode with no guessing when running in 
UTF-8 mode, or simply does nothing if not running in UTF-8 mode.
