Right, but once it goes into a public release (eg. DBD::Pg 1.22) then you 
are stuck supporting it/making a migration path.

The we go this route.

Agreed.  pg_enable_utf8 the flag is, then.  I'll go apply the patch --
changing pg_do_utf8 to pg_enable_utf8.


1. Looking over CVS I don't see a release tag for 1.21.  It would proably
be better for whoever did the export of 1.21 to tag up, but if you want I
will set up a release tag for 1.21?

2. What is the procedure for adding patches, closing bugs, working with
tasks, and working with feature requests on GBorg...  Is there a place
where I can get an overview of how things are done?
