True, and that's hard to just give an answer to. One could do some simple 
testing, make sure regexps work and then treat anything else that might 
not work, as bugs to be fixed later on when found.

The alternative is to inspect all code paths that involve strings, not fun 
at all :-)

My previous mail talked about utf-8 translation. Not all characters
possible to form using utf-8 are assigned by the unicode org. However,
the part that interprets the unicode strings are in the os so different
os'es can give different results. So I think pg should just accept even 6 
byte utf-8 sequences even if some characters are not currently assigned.
