The 2.1.2 release seems to handle this fine for most types. All
"normal" content seems to be converted properly anyway. Unfortunately
I have other objects, most important "CMFCollector Issues", that I
would like to migrate to utf-8 as well. User names are also subject to
this problem and maybe there are more.

Is the only way to go to write similar conversion scripts for all non
at types? I was hoping for some more generic way to convert from
iso-8859 to utf-8.
