I tried this with LANG set to Finnish and Japanese and both seemed to work quite 
well. So, I would suggest setting LOCALE_CHARSET to TRUE and defaulting to UTF-8 

For ASSUME_CHARSET (which concerns files in web without character set 
information) ISO-8859-15 would be probably a good default. The 
ASSUME_LOCAL_CHARSET, which is same for the local files, defaults to whatever 
ASSUME_CHARSET is set, which IMO is dump as LANG environment variable would be 
much better default. This would probably require bug report upstream.
