IIRC, libapreq has defined a function apreq_charset_divine to
heuristically determine charset encoding.  It supports ASCII --> UTF8
--> latin1 --> CP1252

Also, IIRC, people have mentioned splitting the existing apreq project
into APR-UTIL, httpd-core, mod_apreq (in httpd/modules) and CPAN (for
perl glue), although not much has been done.  Might apreq_charset_divine
and friends fit somewhere in apr-util?

If so, I'd be happy to work on a patch to move it in, if some committer
is willing to endorse the work on the apr side...
