Encoding is an alias for lc_ctype, and in my opinion the name encoding
is more descriptive than lc_ctype, hence my preference to specify
"connection property encoding (or lc_ctype)". Encoding is also the
property name that has been given preference in most Jaybird
documentation in the past. I'd sooner prefer to remove lc_ctype from the
documentation, if it weren't for the fact that that would sever the link
with isc_dpb_lc_ctype which might be mentioned in other Firebird

I'll see if I can include that in some way. Thanks for the suggestion.
