Nice notes! I see only one small error:

I don't believe there is any fixed "default character set". Each
installation will have a default locale and encoding, but these depend
on the locale under which initdb was run. From the above comment I
surmise that you initdb'd under some UTF8-using locale ...

Perhaps they should go on the project website somewhere?
