In theory a search on the yahoogroup web interface should show the
past discussions of this. But that didn't work for me, so I post it again:

- no correct uppercasing, only ASCII chars are uppercased at all

- character length limit not enforced (can store 'ABC' into char(1)
character set UNICODE_FSS)

- no non-trivial collations defined for UNICODE_FSS

- UNICODE_FSS is unaware of the astral planes, but you get way with
this by simply treating UNICODE_FSS as CESU-9 in your code (if you
need astral planes at all)
