Somewhat wrong. The core problem is the procedures offered by
PrepareClientEncoding is choosed only by encoding->encoding
basis, not counting character set compatibility. So, currently
this is not detectable before actually doing conversion of a
character stream.

Conversely, providing a means to check character-set
compatibility will naturally fixes this. Check at session-startup
(out-of-transaction check?) is still another problem.
