Oops, I hadn't had a look at your branch for a long time, obviously.
But still I don't see a big problem to ship mousepad without encoding
support even though it would be some kind of regression since the
current trunk and the 4.4 release had encoding support.
It would also be sad to not ship the new features of your branch.

I'm not sure but luckily I don't have to decide it, haha.
