I know you're being flippant ... but it's a serious question.  Right now,
iconv() returns EILSEQ if you cannot convert an input character to the
target character.  It also does that if you have an invalid multibyte
sequence.  Based on _what you want to happen_, what, exactly, should be
done from a programming perspective?  Bail?  Substitute something?  Do
something else?
