Hello dear developers,

The command

    SET client_encoding = 'UTF8'

throws an exception in the driver, because the driver expects UNICODE. I 
understand exceptions for other encodings, but this is IMHO a must have. 
Out database scripts should contain this line at the beginning, to be 
able to dump them manually into the server, and which is actually more 
correct than a line that sets the encoding to 'UNICODE'.

Thanks in advance and with best regards,
Daniel Migowski
