Is there any way to determine the encoding for a user ID string?
At first blush it appears the answer is "no, but most people use UTF-8."
If so that's fine, but I'll have to silently discard a number of user
IDs that appear to be in foreign encodings or are garbled UTF-8. I'd
prefer not to do this, so if there's some magic way of discovering the
intended encoding, I'd love to know about it. :)
