Re: Fwd: LMDB and text encoding

I suggest we wait to deal with DB names until we also have a way to
deal with filenames.  And this time test that it works is practice:-)
Hopefully users and programmers will only need one method of handling
non-ASCII LMDB names on Windows, not two.

I'd be nice if 'mdb_stat filename -s dbname' would Just Work, as would
reading DB names and filenames from an config file.  Yet OS-aware and
OS-specific config files can look rather different.  Maybe LMDB must
handle DB names more flexibly than filenames, or maybe we'll end up
recommending that "portable" DB names must be UTF-8.  And add a "flag
convert UTF8<->WCHAR if this is Windows".
