Yes, it may be GBK or some other CJK  encoding, and sometimes it's utf-8.
So I have to check the "raw" data, whether it is utf-8.
If not, I'll try to convert it to utf-8, and the user can specify the
original encoding, just behaves like firefox.

Meanwhile, I found id3lib has an API named ID3_Field::GetRawText().
I haven't tried yet, but I hope taglib could provide a similar API.
