It would be nice to have parse_str($str, $arrout) accepting a third parameter allowing to specify string encoding. Typically javascript encoded strings will be in UTF-8. My server for example uses ISO-8859-1 for everything.

I'm willing to try to develop a patch for this (never done it before). It would be nice if somebody pointed out what internal functions should i use to get this working.

PHP has no understanding of encodings therefore there is no reason for such a parameter there.
