Neither politycal, nor religious =:-) Purely practical.

Imagine replying to an utf-8 message. Appended signature is in
iso, so I start with mixture of charsets. Then I have a lot of
codings to play with. Conversion of utf-8 part of message.
Headers of the message. Three types of internal emacs codings.
It was possible to set it all correctlly, but I realize that my
life is too short for such a games.

How to process ... and have some work done. =:-)

I was advised to switch to utf-8, but this would not help too
much.  Imagine replying to iso message ....  
And inserting text file from disc.

With regret I had to find another editor.
