Reading UTF-8 files?

Does anyone know if there's a way to read UTF-8 files?  The docs 
suggest not (only UTF-16).

If not, then my app won't be able to read iPhoto albums with high-byte 
characters in the album title, such as umlauts, ö.  Ugh...

Does anyone know if this is expected to be fixed in 2.5?
