Hello Mike,

I'll answer to the second question, since I worked with Paul on
Perl/MySQL and UTF-8...

We don't use decode_utf8. Just after the database handler creation, we
force communication to be UTF-8 with "set names 'UTF8'" SQL query. As
we know our data are UTF-8 stored and we want UTF-8, all works fine.
