i do not know how glib handles this, but imho it's simply:

byte[] b = readBytes();
string t = decodeBytes(b,"UTF-8");
if (t == null) //or any other way that signalizes that the decoding
then t = decodeBytes(b,"ISO-8859-1"); //this will not fail because all
byte streams are valid iso-8859-1 strings.
