There's yet another problem that I'm running into which needs to be
dealt with properly. [I'll blame my unfamiliarity with i18n issues.]

The webpage output by these scripts should really be in UTF8, not
ISO8859-1, as the maintainer field is in UTF8.

Currently it looks like Unicode::MapUTF8 is the right way to deal with
the charset->UTF8 issue, but I'm not sure if it's optimal or not. It
would require a trivial bit of munging to the output produced by the
webpage and the patch that I made to call to_uft8 when appropriate, as
well as an addition dependency on libunicode-maputf8-perl which is
already in Debian.

Does anyone out there have any thoughts on the issue?
