[Zope-CMF] CMFSetup: non-ascii text

In many places, CMFSetup exports and imports things like titles and  
descriptions. For instance, for the workflow states and transitions.
These fields can often, outside the USA, contain non-ascii strings.  
How do we export and reimport them ?

1. We can export by converting them to unicode, and the ZPT will  
render that as UTF-8. Which charset do we assume ? Anything better  
than "locale.getlocale()[1] or 'latin1'" ?

2. When importing, do we set the values (attributes) as unicode, or  
do we try to re-convert to the above charset...
