That’s I was talking about. But using the macros with the same
name as in utf library doesn’t look like a good pattern. Yep, you
can use define guards like:


But I’d rather just give it another name.
Hence, taking into account comment below,
we are going to substitute SQL_SKIP_UTF8() with
implementation borrowed from icu library.

Ok, then will be waiting for updates.
