Comments on attached patch please. I've cc'd yum-devel since I plan  
to eventually patch yum to respect the encoding provided (if any) to  
createrepo. Original message (for yum-devel readers) here:



- Is it insane to attempt to respect a non-utf8 encoding with yum  
since RPMs don't natively specify the encoding in which they were  

- Is the proposed extension to the rpm-metadata xml schema acceptable?
