It's fixed.  Or what is the problem?

This would be a new feature.  I'm having some private conversation with
the unixODBC maintainer about how to handle this.  We'll work on it for
7.2.

Not sure how to handle this other than backpatching to 7.0 that it doesn't
work. ;-)  (i.e.: done)

As per previous agreement, this will not be an official feature in 7.1.
Needs further review.

All good.

chr() is documented.
