Those *are* the widely known and standardised names. Set by the
OpenStep standard and used on all OpenStep based systems (as far
as I know). The ones you quote are somebody elses standard and nothing
to do with OpenStep.

I think we could probably accept both for GNUSTEP_STRING_ENCODING. We already, in fact, have a table internally (in Unicode.m) that maintains the correspondence between the two.
