That's difficult for me (I'm not Emacs guru).
I think that Mule-UCS doesn't know when a UTF-8 mail is used but
a mailer knows it. For example, Emacsen mailer Mew (mew or
mew-beta) loads Mule-UCS's un-define when composing a UTF-8 mail.

I think that's a bug in Emacs, not in Mule-UCS.
Anyway, if you have a concrete code for UTF-8 pre-operation,
please show me.
