Subject UTF-8 vs UTF-16
Author Nickolay Samofatov
Hello, Peter !

Forgot to ask. What encoding are you really going to implement ?
Currently engine implements UNICODE_FSS, not UTF8.
You propose UCS2, not UTF16, right ?

I want to remind you that UTF8 character may occupy 1-6 bytes.
UTF16 character may occupy 1-3 two-byte words.

Both UNICODE_FSS and USC2 are now obsolete. So fixing MBCS support
inside the firebird engine is very important.
