All output is simply passed straight out -- i.e., in utf8. The only exception seems to be some externalized cert names, etc., which are converted to the system charset (grep for "utf8_to_system").

Not clear what the best way to do this is -- possibly ui.cc should charconvert everything it sees, and higher up layers (e.g., the cert name externalizer) should not do charset conversion, because doing charset conversion twice is bad...?
