This is a horrible hack, but could you take the "©foo" that you get
(without properties), turn it into "©-f-o-o-", then reencode it and look
for the '-'s you added?  It might run into trouble if there were -s in the
string already, but you could always compare the original and -ed strings
to resolve that.
