This is just possible optimalisation - Maybe Merlin proposal is the
best - we could add this technique to regexp_split_to_array - when is
pattern empty, then we could to use direct char separation - without
any new function or change of current function. And somebody, that use
regexp_split_to_array now will have profit too.
