I had a django-database on mysql 4.0.21 and tables encoded in latin-1. After upgrading to mysql 5.0.x django things that the mysql use tables in utf-8, but the encoding hasn't changed.
I think that a configurable database-encoding would be fix this. The DEFAULT should be utf-8 since this won't break the current behavior of django.
