I dunno. I find it odd that if I want a pl/pgsql function to return a
Euro symbol, it has to know what encoding the DB is in. Though I
suppose that would call for a unicode_chr() function.

Is there any multibyte mapping other than unicode that distinguishes
between the character set and the encoding thereof?
