Xfprint4 in a UTF-8 environment

any ideas how to use UTF-8 in a UTF-8 environment? Since both a2ps and
enscript don't support UTF-8 I would suggest following:

Simply convert the text file into the charset choosen by the user in the
"charset" field and print that file. We only have to take care that the
filename doesn't change in the title.

No very good solution, but u2ps is not widely spread and since SuSE and
RedHat uses UTF-8 now by default (at least in a Non-English
environment), so we *need* a solution for that.
