From what I can tell

cp874 != ibm_874 != iso_8859_11

What I can say is that the current cp874 is the implementation of the windows_874 code page. The page itself references the microsoft code page, and also contains the appropriate characters (like EURO SIGN).

https://github.com/python/cpython/blob/master/Lib/encodings/cp874.py
""" Python Character Mapping Codec cp874 generated from 'MAPPINGS/VENDORS/MICSFT/WINDOWS/CP874.TXT' with gencodec.py.

https://www.unicode.org/Public/MAPPINGS/VENDORS/MICSFT/WINDOWS/CP874.TXT

It seems appropriate to at least alias windows_874 with cp874. They are provably the same.

If someone needs the IBM standard, they may have to write a different code page.
