This patch adds minimal suppport for 16-bit Unicode strings
for ID3 tags. It is basically a modification to the ID3v2
parser that checks for Unicode strings. If a string is found
that is a Unicode string, it is converted (in place) to an
ASCII string if it is an ASCII character.

Since we can support non-ASCII characters on the display,
support for non-ASCII characters in ID3 tags should
proably also be supported in the future. This patch is just
an interem change until full Unicode support is implemented
(if ever).
This task depends upon
