We do for UTF-8, btw. See unicode-error-sequence-regexp-range,
Yes, it might be nice to extend this to support non-Unicode coding systems.
GNU’s unibyte vs. multibyte concept is similar, but about a thousand times
morea pain in the arse to work with than our current architecture, and
conceptually not any less ugly.
One more thing that’s slightly depressing for me; if you open
lisp/mule/greek.elc as binary (the default, for other, broken, reasons) the
buffer is trucated. That shouldn’t have happened.
¿Dónde estará ahora mi sobrino Yoghurtu Nghé, que tuvo que huir
precipitadamente de la aldea por culpa de la escasez de rinocerontes?
