Yes, that's what he's talking about and that's why I asked him to clarify,
since it was far from obvious in his first mail here.

He posted to the libcurl list first where I read it (and directed him here) so
I knew somewhat more what he was coming from. libcurl offers a callback for
charset translations, but as I'm not a EBCDIC guy myself I'd much rather hear
from someone who uses such systems on how a suitable solution for libssh2
would look like.
