AFAIK there isn't a standard way to roundtrip this, not even a de facto one.

rmf [1 day ago]

Picking one way to do so seems overreaching as the user may have
additional constraints we aren't aware of.

The building blocks could be providing NEC-only and IBM-only variants as
encoding forms, or providing a way to customize code mappings. (edited)

Or both.

True roundtripping here also seems to be of limited use, because you're
unlikely to have mixed IBM and NEC characters. I think most of the time
what you want is the ability to pick which of those two will
Unicode->SJIS produce (edited)

rmf [1 day ago]

So you would do e.g. cp932 -> Unicode -> jisIBM or whatever that's called.

Thanks for clarifying this! I hate when I know something that isn't true.
