Confirmed. Looks like vim devs are trying to please everyone. :-)
That's actually nice in a way. At very least, cut one of the legacy
encoded sets for each and let the user decide what (if anything) to do
with both sets. The ones in the UTF-8 directories are correctly encoded
UTF-8 (as you might have guessed), and old file incorrectly identifies
_all_ the rest as iso8859-1 (translates to it's an 8bit encoding but it
doesn't know how to determine which). At any rate, my preference is
still to see a slow transition to all UTF8 (when provided and where
convenient) and let man-db do it's thing.
