Actually, it's nearly possible to do that in rhythmbox when using the
gstreamer backend, see the comment I added to

Ah ok, I only quickly checked id3v2.4. UTF-16 would do the trick too
anyway ;)

No idea... easytag or cantus doesn't support that? I'd expect any tagger
using taglib or gstreamer to handle that properly, but I dunno if such
an app exists ;) Anyway, authors of tag writing apps should be bugged if
their apps can't properly write conformant non-iso8859-1 tags ;)
