Description of problem: Unicode parsing error when reading questionable RSS in podcast feed

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 4.1
 from feedparser.py:

__version__ = "4.1"# + "$Revision: 1.92 $"[11:15] + "-cvs"

How reproducible: 100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start python
2. import feedparser
3. feedparser.parse('http://feeds.feedburner.com/railsenvy-podcast')
  
Actual results:

UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf8' codec can't decode byte 0xbb in position 12: unexpected code byte


Expected results:

Successful parsing.

Additional info: see http://code.google.com/p/feedparser/issues/detail?id=128 for documentation on other distros and a working patch.

Also causes gPodder to fail to import some Podcast RSS (like the one above) because it uses the same parsing functions.
