sourceforge2trac importer does not work (with postgres)

The sourceforge2trac contrib script fails due to not using the DB-API correctly and assuming sqlite internals. It also seems to cause segmentation faults whenever it tries to add a ticket with non-ASCII characters.

This patch tries to fix this. The solution is not optimal: it just does a nasty encode("ascii","replace) on all data to strip non-ASCII character. Unless a unicode-aware postgres connection is used this might be the only way to get this working unfortunately.

Well, I guess a simple .encode('utf-8') will work with UNICODE/UTF8 databases, right?

This will probably become a non-issue if/when the unicode branch is merged.

Milestone: 1.0

Unicode branch merged quite some time ago (0.10), but would be nice to get verification that this ticket can be closed. #3521 with patch proves recent success with import, so hopefully someone can confirm this issue also for non-ascii characters.

I'm afraid I don't have either the data or resources to verify this; I ran into this for a one time migration and have not used or touched any sf trackers since.
