Converting to/from unicode to/from any encoding is very easy - that is
the beauty of unicode.  It also provides an easy way to convert between
8-bit encodings by converting to unicode as an intermediate.  There
is a 16-bit unicode code for every 8-bit code of every known encoding.

Java provides an 'ascii2native' utility which despite the name
converts between any encoding ('native') and unicode ('ascii').

Python 2.x also makes converting between unicode and supported
encodings trivial.  

Supporting a simple encoding (no multi-byte) in Python of Java is as simple as
providing a map to/from unicode.

The C++ w_char support library should provide similar utility, but I
am not familiar with it.
