Fabric now has UTF8 support

I've spent the past couple of days integrating IBM's ICU library into CouchDb, so now Fabric has proper UTF8 and internationalization support. This is a big deal just for the string handling, but as huge bonus the ICU library also gives collation support, Perl compatible regular expressions and mad complete date-time handling and parsing, all of which I plan to integrate. Plus it's cross platform, so I only have to do it once.

And they're just giving it away. IBM I take back all the bad things I said about you. You're good people.
