Heh, I'm all for it, I've suggested that months ago when a similar bug came up
and it was you who back then rejected the idea based on the fact that we will
get some correctly encoded strings wrong for sure ;) (I was just arguing what
I thought was what we agreed on).
The type of strings we'll get wrong are rather unlikely, it's basically a
'special character' (umlaut/accent type) plus a 'special punctuation' in a row.
I don't think we'll find this combination very often in normal tags (where
special quotes for quoted speech etc. aren't used).
The only half-way plausible string I can come up with is something like
Blablé² or Blablé³
for album titles (I've very rarely seen superscripts being used in place of
'Volume 2' etc.).
I say let's apply it and see if we get any reports about wrongly extracted
