Why exactly do you need multibyte? I use PostgreSQL for quite some time now
with German umlauts using locale de_DE and it works pretty well except thet
pgaccess does not display them.

But then you mention correct sort order, do you mean you get it to sort
a, "a (instead of writing the umlaut), b in this order instead of a, b, "a
which is ascii order? Well then I should take a look at it.
