utf-8 passwords

Winscp has option "UTF-8 enconding for filenames". However users can't login if the server has passwords encoded in UTF-8 and the password contains non-ascii characters.

Could you add option "UTF-8 encoding for authentication"? That would transform the username and password to utf-8 before sending them to the server.

It's still fairly small user group that needs this support. However local policies create automatical passwords that sometimes contain letters . As those are utf-8 encoded the user is unable to login with winscp without first changing the password.
