And it seems to work in all the MUAs we've used too.

OTOH your stuff will only work in PK, and in the course of trying to
workaround badly encoded text you'll break correctly encoded text (and
probably mess up the display thoroughly for some locales).

I guess I'll just have to add packagekit to the list of apps with
broken unicode support we track in the Fonts SIG. You call that ego I
call that regression.
