Some time ago I proposed a patch to support KOI8-U, and it was committed. I submitted an extra
function to cpmap.pl to build KOI8-U file from KOI8-R.TXT from unicode.org, but afterwards I
found out that cpmap.pl is left almost intact, except for a reference to KOI8-U.TXT that is absent at
unicode.org. I guess that there is KOI8-U.TXT added to the local copy of ftp.unicode.org at winehq.org.
It is quite reasonable because KOI8-U is an approved RFC**** and there cannot be a confusion because
of distinct versions of this file.

I hope that Wine team will not abandon KOI8-U support, at least I depend on it.
