Well, I first wrote a screen font map which combines iso01.sfm and
koi8-r.sfm (you can extract it from the above using
`psfgettable koi8-r.psf'). This screen font map provides ISO 8859-1
Unicodes for KOI8-R characters; that way the thing works with the
default kernel mapping of user input to ISO 8859-1 Unicodes. Then I
added it to the original font using
`psfaddtable koi8-r-8x16.psf my-own-koi8-r.sfm koi8-r.psf'.
