Yeah, and it's not easy to improve on. If we tried to convert all
log messages to the same encoding, which one would that be?
(Please, no nonsense about UTF8 being a universal solution.
The Japanese don't think so, for instance.)
Also, what do you do if you get an encoding conversion failure?
That's even before you get into implementation-dependent problems,
like what to do early in process startup before the encoding
conversion machinery is operational.
A more realistic idea might be to have separate log files for
different encodings, though that has a bunch of management issues
to solve as well.
