Actually PostgreSQL does support Big5. To use Big5, set the client
encoding to Big5 and set the server(DB) encoding to EUC_TW. PostgreSQL
will take care of the conversion between Big5 and EUC_TW.

There are several ways to set the client encoding to Big5:

SQL: set client_encoding to 'Big5';
from psql: \encoding Big5
using environment variable: export PGCLIENTENCODING=Big5 (example for bash)

Hope this helps,
