I have just applied a patch to CVS HEAD and 8.0.X that disables
locale-aware handling of upper/lower/initcap when the locale is C or
With these changes, it seems safe to allow pginstaller to use UTF8
encoding of the locale is C/POSIX. If we don't do that, I am concerned
that Asian users will either make a hacked installer or be required to
run initdb manually by following complex instructions.
We could throw a warning if the combination is selected as a compromise.
