I am adding references here for anyone to be on the clear about MIK.
MIK is a Bulgarian encoding that was used in the 16-bit Bulgarian produced
Pravetz computers.
The computers were Intel x86 (8086) compatible.
The MIK is based on IBM437 codepage, and some of the box drawing characters were
replaced by cyrillic letters.
The codepage gained a lot of popularity in Bulgaria throughout the years -
legacy DOS systems, etc. Now there are a lot of banking, transport, booking,
accounting software packages using it.
So today we have to upgrade those systems to something more modern. Libc support
of MIK will allow for every application to operate on MIK encoded data. This
also includes the appplications based on GNU classpath.

References for the the MIK codepage itself:
1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MIK_Code_page
2. http://czyborra.com/charsets/cyrillic.html
3. http://debian.fmi.uni-sofia.bg/pipermail/ls-dict/2006-April/002760.html
There are 4 different characters in [1] and [2]. GNU libc support is based on
[1]! The reason is that MIK is based on IBM437. [3] is the translators'
discussion on these problems. (the resource is in Bulgarian).
