Does PostgreSQL have a policy on the signedness of strings? When I was
making the patch I generally used "unsigned char" to try to emphasise
that these are not characters, they are bytes of an encoding. But this
doesn't play well with existing functions like PQdsplen and PQmblen.

At this point I'm thinking of dropping the "unsigned" everywhere and
just being really careful of comparisons. OTOH, it's really those two
functions being inconsistant because the underlying functions do use
unsigned. Thoughts?

Have a nice day,
