[Zope] xmlrpc and charsets

I'm stuck hacking the xmlrpc stuff. I can't understand the charset rules
with xmlrpc in the Zope implementation.
Why doesn't it provide unicode string because, the server side is not
supposed to know (and has no way to know AFAIK) the charset of the client
Should that charset be provided explicitely in the xmlrpc request to the
server ?

Sometimes I feel to have a dead brain when dealing with Unicode/charsets
stuffs :o)

Thanks for any enlightenments.
