This is a benchmark result of 1000 loops of 
  SELECT count(*) INTO cnt FROM item WHERE i_title LIKE '%BABABABABARIBA%'
on the table with 10000 rows.

         | SQL_ASCII | LATIN1 |  UTF8 | EUC_JP 
 HEAD    |      8017 |   8029 | 16928 |  18213 
 Patched |      7899 |   7887 |  9985 |  10370 [ms]

It improved the performance not only for UTF8, but also for other
multi-byte encodings and a bit for single-byte encodings.

Thanks for the good work ;)
