[Bug-gnupod] Encoding of non-ascii characters in GNUtunesDB.xml

Hi there,

I wonder If anybody else has the ocassional problem with editing her/his

Since it is XML and the encoding is UTF-8 you don't have any problem as
long as your system is completely UTF-8 compliant. I however have a
mixed iso-8859-1 iso-8859-15 and UTF-8 mess and some of the editors 
that I like to use are not very smart about handling the character 

It would be very easy to convert everything outsite the ascii range to 
the XML escaped version. So say, instead of some garbage you'd see 
"ś" where a "Latin Small Letter s with Acute" is.

Pro: GNUtunesDB.xml becomes a pure ascii file. No more editor/viewer 

Contra: The GNUtunesDB.xml becomes slightly bigger and for people with a
  clean UTF-8 toolchain it becomes a little less readable. (Note: You can
  still edit the file and insert native UTF-8 as you please.)

Any thoughts?
