A path is always a Unicode string, while a DB name can be an arbitrary

Not the point.  A program which uses LDMB can choose to treat its
own DB names in its own LMDB environments as the same kind of
strings as filenames (WCHAR, UTF-8 char, or whatever).  Unless we
make that impossible.

As for what LMDB will accept and what it must handle, that's up to
us.  DB names are not binary blobs yet, after all.
