Any objection to adding the attached (or equivalent) patch?
That would fix the regression the original introduces.

Oh, yes, here's why it's a regression.  For clients that default to
ISO-8859-1, the patch is a no-op.  For a client that guesses, and
guesses right, it may cease to work where it worked before.  Users
who get hit by that will see a regression, and the least we can do
is make it fixable for them.
