xmlrpc_encode_request XML-escapes literally without first converting 
to UTF-16 as required.

Once fixed the default option should also be changed from escaping 
non-ascii, to escaping non-encodable

Reproduce code:
xmlrpc_encode_request('method', '€', array('encoding'=>'utf-8'));

Expected result:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

Actual result:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

The xmlrpc extension is unbundled and moved to PECL as of PHP
7.4.0.  I'm temporarily maintaining the extension, but I will not
do any feature additions.  Actually, everybody is likely better
off to switch to something else.  Thus, I'm closing this ticket.
