Oh, yeah, sorry.  With a zipfile, it doesn't try to read individual
metadata for every file, just a single metadata.rdf, which I guess is
not the best solution in this case...

Okay, we'll do it that way.  I've put that one in incoming.

Yes, I figured those would be the easiest to fix.

I'm glad we've started talking now about how to fix that.  Converting
the text-field strings to UTF8 is something I'm sure there's a module
for, so it should be possible to get that done.

Though, it's taking longer than anticipated to move away from
CGI::Lite, partly due to some unanticipated additional changes I have
to make for it to work right, and partly because I got busy.  (I'm
sure that never happens to anyone else around here...)  So I won't be
checking that change in this week like I'd hoped.

And it won't be until after that that we can work out the non-ASCII
characters thing fully.

I still don't know what causes that.  That's another thing we need to
track down at some point.
