Being UTF-8 incompatible and quite popular on windows (mc is popular on rescue CDs)
and some players/book readers(some DIGMAs) it would be cool to implement UTF-16(and other multibytes: JIS, etc.) as encoding for read/write.

I second this feature request.

Manually adding UTF15 to the list of encodings known by MC doesn't help.

Milestone 4.7.0 will ending in month (at november-december)... I'm not sure that I will realize this feature for one month. For other developers this true too.

Do you have patch for UTF-16? What reason for change milestone?
