The only plugin which really uses toLocal8Bit() is the IBase - Plugin.
Postgres is using it as fallback but according the docs the utf-8
encoding is supported by at least PostgreSQL 7.3 so the non utf-8 part
should be removed.

The other usages are for qWarning() output.

Will take a look on the IBase stuff to see if we can replace it.
