    I dont wanna to mess around with collation normally utf_general_ci will work for everyone but sometimes a user needs a special collation, in that case i recommend to no use any automatted script avalible it will be best do all job manually rather tha automatically, but i will consider that feauture en the new future versionof the plugin/conversion script..
