Adding the URI as a keyword should do it.  Then you can do a keyword search 
for the URI and find the meta-data.

LE (0.4 or whatever) will only return them in UTF-8 format, nothing else.  So 
clients should only have to convert them for the console or their graphics 
toolkit (if those use something other than UTF-8).

That would be great.  It essentially should boil down to changing configure to 
link against libiconv and going through all of the plugins, converting to 
UTF-8 as needed (which will mean to look at the format specs to figure out 
what the encoding is supposed to be (if specified) or to have some heuristics 
to guess what the encoding is).

The LE specific part should be trivial, it should really boil down to adding 
calls to libiconv in the right places.
