The installer allows only to select the locale, but not to set the encoding and 
furthermore simple Mac users who made a bad choice need to be warned that 
simply running the Enterprisedb binary uninstaller will leave behind not only 
the postgres system user, but also
which will retain the postgresql.conf file (which will keep the locale) and 
other files.

Retaining the files in /data will cause the installer to deny the user the 
option to choose anew the needed locale. Ironically, what is needed is simply 
[Default locale].

        --> client_encoding = UNICODE (I think)

        --> client_encoding = SQL_ASCII (apparently)

[Default locale]

        --> locale = "C", client_encoding = UTF8 (apparently)
