Actually this is not a bug. When I introduced the
coding-type `charset' in Emacs 23, I changed most
coding-systems that require charset-mapping to that type.
In the future, I want to delete all Big5 (and SJIS) specific
codes in coding.c.
But, the implementation of detecting coding systems of the
same type won't be in time for Emacs 23.1. So, I'll commit
