This sounds somewhat like the wrong approach to me.
The metadata should be transformed to UTF-8 on input, so it's stored
internally to icecast ONLY as UTF-8. This would be better done as a
mountpoint-specific option, as it's not something that I'd expect to
be the same across all mountpoints.
Using a different charset for logging sounds... strange. Why not just
always log in UTF-8, consistently?
That said, some solution for this problem would be nice.
