     What would it take to support it?
Would it be of any value to support "Modified UTF-8"?


    That's nice, but I don't think so.

The problem is that you cannot predict how people would send you data, like when importing from other databases. I guess it may work if Postgres would implement such UTF-8 variant and also the drivers, but that would still require an encoding conversion (i.e., parsing every string) to change the 0x00, which seems like a serious performance hit.

    It could be worse than nothing, though!
