 It looks like raggle has a way to switch transliteration off although it
 is the default mode. After a look at the script (without any knowledge
 of Ruby :-) I created $HOME/.raggle/config.rb like this
   $config = {
     'use_iconv_translit'    => false
 After invalidating (press "I") and forcing an update (press "U") raggle
 downloads feeds and displays them.
 Should we change the default for "use_iconv_translit" for all platforms
 with a patch? I do not know what could happen if we do. The comment in
 raggle says:
   # It's probably a good idea to leave transliteration enabled.  It will
   # prevent iconv from barfing on characters it can't translate, and,
   # since Ncurses-Ruby doesn't have wide character support, it will keep
   # Ncurses from printing garbage all over the screen.
