I had thought earlier that providing a file of mappings would be easy enough.
I dunno whether a #pragma to give the file, or maybe a command line option.

Perhaps #pragma option -charmap filename.ext

This could extend to all command line options.

char *p="char *p=%c%s%c;main(){printf(p,34,p,34);}";main(){printf(p,34,p,34);}
