In MySQL 3.22, only one character set may be used at a time, and it
must be chosen when MySQL is compiled. The default is latin1 with
swedish sorting order. To use a different character set, you will
need to get the source and recompile.
In MySQL 3.23, the character set can be chosen when you start mysqld,
and you can add new character sets without recompiling MySQL.
