I just noticed that PG not support the following encoding: 
	/* followings are for client encoding only */
	PG_SJIS,					/* Shift JIS (Winindows-932) */
	PG_BIG5,					/* Big5 (Windows-950) */
	PG_GBK,						/* GBK (Windows-936) */
	PG_UHC,						/* UHC (Windows-949) */
	PG_GB18030,					/* GB18030 */
	PG_JOHAB,					/* EUC for Korean JOHAB */
	PG_SHIFT_JIS_2004,			/* Shift-JIS-2004 */
	_PG_LAST_ENCODING_			/* mark only */



But  PG_GBK and PG_GB18030 are very popular in Chinese charset.
Could anybody give some hints about how to extend it in PG source code?


Although UTF-8 and PG_EUC_CN is ready.  But I think it's useful to implement the support of PG_GBK.


Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
