double-byte character set support for online Radio streaming

As I know,
double-byte character set has been supported by "foo_http_sjis_patch2.dll" until foobar version 1.3.x

I checked it by testing.
foobar 1.3.x without foo_http_sjis_patch2.dll : dynamic title/artist were broken for double-byte character
foobar 1.3.x with foo_http_sjis_patch2.dll : double-byte characters are shown normally.

But, from foobar 1.4 beta, it looks like that foo_http_sjis_patch2.dll doesn't work.

I think that it would be better if 'double-byte character support for online streaming' is implemented into the future foobar itself. Would it be possible?

The online streaming dynamic titles are only available in a few formats:

MP3/AAC: Shoutcast tags. Limited to ANSI encoding, probably coded to only support ASCII.
Ogg container: Chained streams, using one full UTF-8 tag per stream.

Matroska/WebM container: Probably something for this, not sure.
