Description

Non-ASCII input data (e.g. from qsub or qconf) should be converted to
utf-8 from the locale encoding. Ideally they should be converted back
for non-XML output from qstat et al, but not converting output is no
worse than the current situation (e.g. submitted by user in one locale,
viewed in another).

It's not clear what to do with arbitrary clients, e.g. DRMAA. Probably
qmaster should reject non-utf-8 input, but that may be a significant
overhead.

Would fix #494.
