This is a codec for hp-roman generated by munging data 
from and running on it.

I think the copyright is a bit inaccurate :-)

Also, does this do the right thing with unassigned bytes?  I didn't 
think (eg) 0x80 represented a valid character in roman8, could be 

Otherwise, looks ok to me...

Richard, could you pleaes remove the copyright notices from

high control characters. Whether 0x80 really corresponds to 
PAD or is unused is getting a bit esoteric for me.
