Do you have a diff somewhere?  I'd be interested in your approach, to
see if the same thing would make sense in HDBC.

I had generally been of the opinion that HDBC should just pass data
through, however it is obtained, and let the programmer set the
encoding as desired.  If this approach isn't working for people, I'd
like to fix it, but want to make sure it's done right.
