Find the encoding of the HTTP response from the HTTP header

This function is currently made available so it can be called from C code to find the charset from the HTTP header in the response from an HTTP server. It maps this charset value to one of the known R encodings (UTF-8 or LATIN1) or returns the native encoding.

This will most likely be removed in the future.
