Andy, may I have a request for the charset of the DB? you said you will use
the constant "utf-8" in the DB scheme to resolve the problem, could you
include this fix in the next version 0.1.x? since it is a kind of "preview
release" for xprofile and private messaging components, it is intended to be
used and tested by the people around the world, thanks!
