Perhaps my algorithm is perfect. However it's only in pseudo-language...

We can use this method
- hold length in bytes
- is fixed size (min == max) ? len = bytes / min
- is utf8 ? use formula
- convert string to ucs4 (using a temporary buffer) and count converted

All in TODO. Is not difficult to implement SQLGetInfo (just return what
odbc driver support).
