I have tested Atsushi's patches with PostgreSQL 8.0.3 on my Note PC
running Linux 2.4 and got following results (database encoding is
EUC_JP):

1) without patches

$ time psql -c 'set client_encoding to 'SJIS';select * from accounts;'  test 
>/dev/null

real    0m4.926s
user    0m1.680s
sys     0m0.090s

2) with patches

$ time psql -c 'set client_encoding to 'SJIS';select * from accounts;'  test 
>/dev/null

real    0m3.816s
user    0m1.560s
sys     0m0.070s

3) no encoding conversions

$ time psql -c 'set client_encoding to 'EUC_JP';select * from accounts;'  test 
>/dev/null

real    0m3.220s
user    0m1.760s
sys     0m0.070s

I got the 52% overhead decreases to 18% with the patches. This is a
huge improvement! I will commit to current if there's no objection.
