Bug Description

I would like to have any way to change the native-transcoder to (latin-1-codec).
The rationale is that there are many legacy systems that work with some Latin
encoding in thousands of file.
If one had a way to call (native-transcoder latin-1-codec) or similar,
one could easily port such systems from R5RS to R6RS. It seems to be
a deficiency in R6Rs, but why should not a major R6RS implementation
like Ikarus does not exercise how to solve the deficiency?
