Ooops… I accidently sent a reply privately instead of to the list,
sorry for that.
Here it is again, this time hopefully to the list:

I'm probably not allowed to say anything at all, since I'm not a
developer (or at least not a good one), but I have used metaflac for
years (in my own bash-scripts) and never had any problems with UTF-8
(I never use anything but UTF-8) what so ever. What exactly am I
missing here?
