Actually, thinking about it the answer is no. The code is relying on
the fact that it's a charset that has ASCII as a subset. Unless someone
can say that every single-byte encoding we support has an ASCII subset
(EBCDIC being the obvious counter-example for not supported encodings)
then I think we have to stick to enumerating them.
