Hm, yeah. Normal input to the database goes through pg_any_to_server(),
which will apply a validation step if the source encoding is SQL_ASCII
and the destination encoding is something else. However, pg_convert and
some other places call pg_do_encoding_conversion() directly, and that
function will just quietly do nothing if either encoding is SQL_ASCII.
The minimum-refactoring solution to this would be to tweak
pg_do_encoding_conversion() so that if the src_encoding is SQL_ASCII but
the dest_encoding isn't, it does pg_verify_mbstr() rather than nothing.
I'm not sure if this would break anything we need to have work,
though. Thoughts? Do we want to back-patch such a change?
