[vlc-devel] Charset conversion module type ?

I have the need of a charset conversion module for doing non standard
conversions. Ex: ARIB outside of the subtitles data case (ie: EPG & EIT
short event desc).

ARIB patches were bloating the ts module by 100K, especially adding the
whole tables. I have a working solution, but that's through the subs
codecs, and passing blocks for extracting psz_text from
subpictures_regions is more than overhead.

3 options then:

- add a pf_charsetconv in decoder_t.
unsure if that really matches the "codec" definition

- add a charset_conversion module type / structs in vlc_charset.h.

- add to the core. (we already do the utf8 and such)
not really an option.
