Strangely enough it seems that I have been able to save utf-8 strings in 
ITPC via digikam (my locale is UTF8 based) and import it successfully to

into the appropriate field).

Ok, I would like to hear this, since I often use different languages for 
tags this is quite important to me.

Very cool! I thought it was only for syncing.  I will take a look at this.

Thanks for the answers.  Looks like there is a lot to look forward to in 
Digikam.  I will direct the points you mentioned to the bugzilla database.
