That's definitely undecidable by the $assumed_charset mechanism.
However, the default and so evil pass-thru mode might greatly help:
Seemingly some terminals (Rxvt?) can display simultaneously Latin-1 and
UTF-8. Feed them the raw mix; get seamless display.
I don't know wich terminal(s) do that (PuTTY doesn't), but am very
interested in any feedback.
