[Icecast] extended characters

well, if I manually update the metadata via oddcast and enter "MÃ ire 
Brennan - I Láthair Dé", then check the icecast2 status page, I see : 
Current Song: Màire Brennan - I Láthair Dé

which I presume is correct.  If I then open this stream with winamp, it 
displays as : M - I Láthair Dé.  If I look at the file properties, the 
vorbis winamp plugin tells me there are two comment fields, ARTIST=M and 
TITLE=I Láthair Dé.  Oddcastv2 only sent TITLE=Mà ire Brennan - I Láthair 
Dé, so that tells me that the winamp vorbis input plugin is not handling 
the charset properly.  Frankly I'm suprised that oddcast is actually 
handling it properly, but as far as I can tell (the icecast2 status page 
also shows <artist>Màire Brennan</artist>
  and <title>I Láthair Dé</title>) oddcast is setting the vorbis comments 
properly.  So that pretty much leaves only the vorbis input plugin.
