I beleave there is no need for such an option. The only thing is
needed that ODBC-driver and Postgres use the same format during
connection. Thus opening connection ODBC-driver should always set
the datestyle which it uses. Asking the datestyle from backend and
than using appropriate conversion is posible but why to bother with
this while the opposite (instructing backend what datestyle to use)
is much simpler to implement and will work equaly well?
