I don't have much interest in adding features to megatools these days,
but I don't mind accepting patches and doing releases from time to time.

So feel free to send a patch.

Alternative encodings are supported, you just need to configure your
environment variables correctly. Maybe with static builds, that use
musl, the set of encodings is limited, because musl's iconv is limited,
but normal megatools build based on system's libraries, should work fine.
