It is pointed out on wikipedia that Java sometimes uses to byte pair C0
80 to represent the NUL character to allow it to be embedded in C
strings without tripping anything up. It is however technically an
illegal representation (violates the minimal representation rule) and
thus rejected by postgres. I'm not suggesting we copy this, but it does
show there are other ways to deal with this.
