	Currently, bugzilla uses ISO-8859-1 charset enconding. There is no 
support for UTF-8, and I'm not sure if it will be in some time (does
MySQL support UTF-8?). In the other hand we have a problem with
bug-buddy reports, because the bugzilla importer only understands 7 bit
ASCII chars (ie: no áéíóúäëïöü, etc...). I think that Martin tried to
workaround this converting to base64 before invoking the import.xml
(bugzilla import script), but it doesn't work. Maybe a bug in bugzilla
2.10. We should try if bugzilla-test does this correctly, and,
definitively, solve this for new bugzilla/bug-buddy.
