Yes there are.  Tom the Magi has come up with a patch for that I

Reading that thread, and all the manuals, it seems that unicode is very limited; It really only works in one langauge in a database. So in reality, it'd just be simpler to use an 8 bit encoding on any postgres database, and a new database for each and every langauge that needs to be used by a company/site, if I have understood all the implications.
