"Encoding" key in the desktop entries


Some desktop entries in core modules lack the required by standard [1]
"Encoding" key. The count:
      1 acme
     12 gedit
      1 gnome-applets
      1 gnome-media
      2 metacity
      8 nautilus
      1 procman

Another probably more serious problem is that current desktop code
apparently assumes UTF-8 for the ones without "Encoding", when again by
standard its supposed to assume Legacy-Mixed. 
This currently works because all core dekstop entries are translated in
UTF-8 but changing it to adhere to standard would also require patching
all the desktop entries without encoding.

I guess fixing this requires some sort of release-team


P.S.  prepared patch for gnome-control-center can be found here
