But when someone _does_ use non-ASCII database names, etc., shouldn't we
produce some kind of useful error, or at least blindly pass the bytes on
to the server?

Changing those characters into "?"s does not seem like the right
solution. That gives us the worst of both worlds: we don't get a useful
error message, yet it's impossible to connect when, e.g., the database
name contains non-ASCII characters.
