IIRC Unicode fundamentally means UCS-2 not UTF-8 under Windows
whereas in PostgreSQL UNICODE means UTF-8 not UCS-2.
Currently psqlodbc driver doesn't provide the functionality for UCS-2
clients to talk to PostgreSQL servers.
We have to implement pretty many SQLxxxxxW API functions and
handle SQL_C_WCHAR type bindings in psqlodbc drvier to provide
the functionality.
If you are in the Japanese environment, you could talk to UTF-8
servers by setting Connect string as SET CLIENT_ENCODING
to 'SJIS' and display Japanese characters but it doesn't seem
your case.
