But isn't a simple fix for chr() and ascii(), which does not
require a redesign, a Good Thing for 8.3 if possible? Something
that maintains as much upward and/or Oracle compatibility as

And I think - correct me if I am wrong - that conversion between
character and integer representation of the character in the current
database encoding is exactly that.

I see Tom Lane's point in rejecting chr(0), though.
