Hello all,

I'd like to make an inflamatory note:

==> let a non-Latin programmer do the Unicode stuff <==

I am angry, since nothing except plain 8-bit stuff will go through to
Postgres via the JDBC driver. Funny thing is, I can read and write Greek
(as Unicode) in psql, but when I try via JDBC... I get empty strings!!!

Oh, and another thing.. ALL unicode regression tests succeed, because...
they send 8-bit representations of the Unicode set... shit happens when
_everybody_ uses ISO-8859-1 as default charset... so when I see code

  for (int i=0; i<unicodeMaxValue; i++) {
    char c = (char) i;
  StringBuffer toPostgres = new StringBuffer(unicodeString);

I laugh out loud because the guy who wrote it never read the JavaDoc about
Strings and encodings in Java... wake up, this is _not_ C!!!!

angry regards,
