Bundle Editor -> New Command
Input: None
Output: Replace Selected Text
Key Equivalent: <your choice>

__CFUSERTEXT_ENCODING=0×1F5:0×8000100:0×8000100 /usr/bin/pbpaste | / 
usr/bin/iconv -c -s -f UTF-8 -t ISO-8859-1

Then use that command for pasting instead of cmd-v.

Caution: that will silently discard characters which cannot be  
converted. If you want to do better (say, by replacing them with '?)  
you'll need to install GNU iconv (MacPorts, Fink, etc).
