Urm, where in my mail did I say you should "pretend all the world is
iso-8859-1" ? I said you just need to run a conversion from the program's
native character set (whatever that may be) to UTF-8 & vica-verca. No
assuption need be made about the application's native charset - only the 
DBus charset is fixed.
