We need a pref to speficy an application level default character set.
We also need a UI for this pref.
We used to have 'intl.character_set'. Since this requires a charset id instead
of name, we need a new one which takes a name. How about
UI should be separated from the charset menu.
If we do this (and I think we should), the prefs 4.5 -> 5.0migration tool will
need to handle this. Cc'ing dbragg.

This is depend on bug 2341. Mark it as M5
For M5, we are shooting to have the charset menu, but no way to set the pref
for default charset until M6.
Do we really need this in M6 ??? I think it will only take me 3-4 hours to fix
this. But I am not sure why we have to have it for M6
change to M7
Moved to M9
Fix and check in. Add the following line to prefs50.js to changethe default
charset to Shift_JIS
I verified this in 8-24 Win32, Linux builds.
