Thanks Yusei!

The above works within the Python console, but within a Zope Python 
script I get repeated username/password requests, finally failing with a 
'You are not allowed to access 'lookup' in this context'.

Within a Zope External Method I get 'unknown encoding: iso-2022-jp'

However I just tried 'iso2022_jp' within an External Method and that 
worked. 'iso-2022-jp' is supposed to be an accepted alias of 
'iso2022_jp' but apparently the external method is unable to find it 
using the alias...

Anyway, hopefully now I'll be able to convert Japanese text in utf-8 to 
iso-2022-jp!  Thanks!
