Roy is using MT-NewsWatcher as a client.  Because its codebase's origins 
are back in classic MacOS (<= 9), it has its own *interesting* ways to 
deal with encodings.  BTW, don't upgrade to OS X 10.9 Mavericks if 
you're dependent on MT-NW; it finally stops working there because what 
was left of Open Transport support in OS X has finally been ripped out 
of 10.9.
