Amarok not showing Cyrillic tags

Obviously the problem comes from the different Cyrillization of Windows and Linux systems. Songs that were tagged with cp1251 are not properly read by systems that use unicode.
The solution?
Well, you download a script from this site and then you do:
chmod +x tag2utf.py
./tag2utf.py /path/to/mp3
I tested it and it looks like it's working. It will ask you whether the original cyrillization is cp1251 or koi8-r. And you time c for the former and k for the latter. And that's all.
