FWIW, this patch also *completely* breaks the default windows
installs, which will have the database in UTF-8 but there is *never*
any UTF-8 support on the console (only UTF-16).

So +1 for not making it the default... Or at least have logic based on
the *client* to figure out what the default should be, in case that
can be made consistent.
