Agreed. I mentioned checking the email thread for specific collation
settings as well as the existing charset setting.

Agreed. This could be:

 1 an automatic migration similar to other schema upgrades run using
   the roundup-admin migrate command

 2 a separate roundup-admin comand to run SQL without having to
   install/resort to using the mysql(1) command.

I am leaning toward the second option because this isn't a schema
migration as much as an underlying change in the encoding of the same
schema. But I haven't given it a lot of thought.
