    What do you mean (sorry) by "obsolete"?

    If you mean, "do NOT use that for a new project", I agree with you
    wholeheartly, and I believe such an advice was already being given for about
    8 years.

    On the other hand, I was under the impression UTF-7 is still used by e.g.
    some IMAP (and more generally electronic mail servers) implementations, some
    of them /quite/ widespread.
