Follow-up Comment #1, bug #51330 (project groff):

I like the idea of using a library to guess the charset and encoding. 
However, I think that libmagic is not suited to that – as far as I can see,
it returns a textual description of the data that preconv had to parse
manually.  Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Looking around, the probably best choice is uchardet:


We could make preconv use it optionally if it is available.
