The looks like an approach to the problem, once over seems
correct as well.

The real problem, that rpm string types are 8 bit clean but
not utf8 encoded, needs to be addressed in *.spec parsing
during build, and perhaps a utility that runs periodically
against the rpmdb, converting changelog entries once, not
every query, in package headers.

The real fixx needs to go after string types, not just changelog,
as well, as the day of i18n package names and file names in rpm
packaging is rapidly approaching.
