Passing code (web pages, etc) throught iconv is not a good idea -
{git,cg}-diff should show the file content as it is, not altered by iconv.

Changing PAGER is a bit... ugly and messy way of doing it. Assume that I
work on some files and want to look at some unversioned files outside
the tree (like docs, man pages, whatever) and the $PAGER passes the
legitimate ISO8859-2 files through iconv, what gives us garbage. And we
end up changing pager very often - Bad Idea (TM).
