This plugin is great, but I seem to have a small encoding problem: I save my readmes as unicode and non-ascii characters seem to break somewhere between the repository and the plugins_api() call. 

I think the problem is somewhere in class WP_Http, although this is a little over my head...

Any ideas? You can probably verify this by trying to pull the "move wordpress comments" readme (unicode in changelog, near Tobias).
