It would be nice if you could specify the encoding used to read in metadata, I've had a few files that I unfortunately can't share where the encoding used to save the metadata is Shift-JIS. When ffmpeg copies this metadata over it converts it to garbage as seen here:

Looks like this is actually possible already:

ffmpeg -i sample.wav -f ffmetadata - | iconv -f sjis -t utf8 | ffmpeg -i sample.wav -f ffmetadata -i - -map_metadata 1 -c:a flac sample.flac

The above was given to me by furq in the ffmpeg irc and converts the above file correctly.
