How does the package compare to luit from x11-utils?
I have occasionally wanted to use a program that expects a UTF-8
terminal on a latin1 terminal, which is the opposite of what luit
does. Would cocot help me?
More generally, I think it would be useful to indicate roughly which
encodings would be supported on the application side and on the
terminal side. From the web site  I see that it supports using a
terminal supporting the CP932 encoding to run programs that expect to
be able to use EUC-JP and that Unicode support was at some point a
work in progress.
