That does seem like the simplest approach and should cover all possible 
usernames (if you can't represent it in UTF-8 you can't get it into a 
String, anyway), if not all possible encodings.

Agreed. I don't like the idea of "configure the server to use UTF-8 like 
this.. except if you have one of these encodings as your JVM default in 
which case you need to do something else like this.. and maybe how your 
cluster needs to be configured will change if you change JVM versions or 
environment or driver version".
