The existing --encoding support for Jumbo could easily be extended to 
handle Shift-JIS but for a format like tripcode this would not add 
functionality, unless we extend it to optionally do 8-bit -> 8-bit 
conversions. This is a fair bit down on my to-do list as it only adds 
convenience, and may hit performance.

We could make a dumb-sjis external mode though, similar to the dumb16 
one (the latter outputs UTF-8). This is likely very trivial.

For incremental mode, I think the quickest solution would be a separate 
--inc16 mode that is almost identical to the current one except it 
handles 16-bit characters internally (be it UTF-16 or any 16-bit 
representation of JIS). Together with some --enc glue, I think this 
would "solve" the problem for Unicode and Shift-JIS in one fell swoop.
