I didn't find one line. However, I found several occurences in
IB_Components.pas and IBODataset.pas that go along the lines of:

if Statement.IB_Connection.CharSet = IBO_UTF8 then
Result := UTF8Decode( Value )
Result := Value;

(I searched the whole source for the IBO_UTF8 constant)

So can I just skip all these Utf8Decode/Utf8Encode calls?

(I don't get over it. I still think it's not correct to give a special
treatment to UTF8 client connections ... ;-)
