This function is used also when generating text/plain articles
and this change makes it always use UTF-8 (even if the text
contains only ASCII letters). However, UTF-8 is not necessarily
available (Emacs 21's native UTF-8 does not support CJK text,
for instance) and is not necessarily efficient for Japanese text.
So, I've changed it to the value that the function
`detect-mime-charset-region' determines, in the CVS trunk. It is
defined in APEL, and is being used with MUAs including Wanderlust
for a long time.
