I really have to object to this going in on the day before RC1, as well.
(1) There is no way on God's green earth that this isn't a new feature.
(2) It is mucking with fairly central code.
(3) AFAIK it hasn't been reviewed by anybody who's familiar with the
multibyte code.
(4) How do you know that wider-than-16-bit characters won't break stuff
elsewhere?

regards, tom lane
