As far as I've seen all tag libraries have this problem, atleast
libid3tag and id3lib.

In the end I wrote code that removed the old ID3v2 header
altogether and rendered and attached an entirely new header,
explicitly setting the encoding of each string field. This worked...

I would also like taglib to do this, so it's +1.
