New charset IBM1153

Hi everybody!

Is there any possibility that a further charset (HOST IBM CP1153/1375 
Latin 2 - EBCDIC Multilingual) will be part of
a next JRE version or update? It is quite a new charset and is simular to 
IBM870, but has the EURO sign in addition.
As more and more countries in eastern europe change their currency to euro 
or use it for payment, it is getting more 
and more important (in particular for mainframes).

We have a problem  just now with a DB2 java driver, which does  not 
support this charset because it is at the moment not part of the 
standard JVM.

Thanks for your reply in advance! 

Best regards

        Boris Just
