Yeah, it's pretty out-of-date.  Someone or other had promised to update
it (Peter E. I think).

"At least one file" isn't very helpful.  If you want these things fixed,
how about *specifics*?  Patches would be even better ;-).  (The same

Hmm, I suppose CREATE DATABASE WITH ENCODING 'US-ASCII' had better be
accepted even when multibyte isn't enabled.  (Tatsuo, any comment here?)
