ANSI defines two functions: CHAR_LENGTH() (with CHARACTER_LENGTH() as the other
name) and OCTET_LENGTH(). The first accepts only STRING values and returns the
length in characters or length in octets (depending on the USING clause). The
second accepts VARBINARY or STRING and returns the length in octets.

We have a LENGTH() function that returns the character length if the argument is
STRING, and the octet length if the argument is VARBINARY.

Since I am planning to introduce the USING clause, I find it better to use the
CHAR_LENGTH() and OCTET_LENGTH() implementations for LENGTH() depending on the
type of the argument. The func_octet_length() function will be used cases such
as this:
SELECT char_length(string_value USING OCTETS);

At the moment, I have no plans to introduce OCTET_LENGTH().
