[Nmh-workers] charset conversion for windows-1252

Does mhshow-charset-windows-1252 not work in nmh 1.5? I noticed that
one of Lyndon's messages in the IMAP thread was windows-1252 encoded
and contained some en dashes, which are in the part of the encoding
space which isn't UTF-8 compatible. 

I added this in my .mh_profile:

  mhshow-charset-windows-1252: %s | iconv -f windows-1252 -t utf-8 | less

and it appears to be ignored. For comparison, the same line for
iso-8859-1 appears to work.

More generally: Is there any way to set a default charset handler? What
I really want is something in the spirit of:

  mhshow-charset-*: %s | iconv -f %e -t utf-8 | less
