Movable Type does invalid XML-RPC?

I'm getting parse errors on the XML-RPC methodResponse from a Movable Type weblog. It's got encoding="UTF-8" specified in the XML header, but it's got some characters in it that certainly aren't UTF-8. Looks like it's being produced by SOAP::Lite. Looks like the charset conversion there has to be done manually.

Looks like Georg's XML header rewriting hack is going to end up inside the Topic Exchange client :-)

Update: Charles Cook says that MT's non-ascii XML-RPC support is all broken. Any Perl hackers want to spend the time to get it fixed?
