We currently have:
Maybe change these to:
The ClientEncodingID would be the Windows LCID (I assume that's relevant
in this case)

I'm not sure that's the best place. It would need to be somewhere that's
relevant to the whole connection, because that's how it would be set.
What about setting it from the Context menu (right click), and the
database properties page. We could then remember the encoding per database
in the registry for future connections.
