You mean like the attached?

I moved str_initcap() over into oracle_compat.c and then had initcap()
convert to/from TEXT to call it.  The code is a little weird because
str_initcap() needs to convert to text to use texttowcs(), so in
multibyte encodings initcap converts the string to text, then to char,
then to text to call texttowcs().  I didn't see a cleaner way to do
