This also works for me (tested on a koi8-r terminal, omitting the
iconv's).  My previous test was wrong - both words I tried it on
included the '\xD7' character, which is one of the three specific to
koi8-r and not a letter in iso-8859-1.  Sorry for the noise, and thanks!
I guess more testing did not hurt, after all. ;-)
