FS#181 - Handle UTF-8 encoded IPTC+XMP data.
IPTC and XMP data that's encoded via UTF-8 doesn't properly import, with the database barfing on the actual import due to illegal characters.
Theoretically XMP and IPTC data can have encoding tags, but in practice nobody uses them. We need to detect the charset and convert to UTF-8 before we can shove anything in the database.
Reason for closing: Implemented
Additional comments about closing: Finally implemented and committed; see r1534. (will be in 2.34-rc3)
