yes, it is supported, see Examples/Encoding.hs in the
http://freearc.narod.ru/Binary.tar.gz :

 h <- openWithEncoding latin1 =<< openBinaryFile "test" ReadMode
 print =<< vGetLine h
 vSetEncoding h utf8
 print =<< vGetLine h
 vSetEncoding h latin1
 print =<< vGetLine h
 vClose h

it's not optimized currently. if you will need more speed - yell me

Best regards,
