i'm afraid not. Both the playlist buffer and .emms-cache file will
display garbages. To be clear, following is my coding system info, say,
a file named foo.mp3,

foo                   - filename, utf-8
mp3info output of foo - gbk
.emms-cache           - utf-8 or gbk

emms-cache tries to save filename and mp3info, which are two different
encoding here, to one file, maybe the conversion is unavoidable? i don't
know why your way doesn't work, though..

Still not. :(
