cppdb's odbc driver uses both *A and *W API in same code explicitly
without separating it. Also it is very important that odbc API
allows to pass both wide and narrow strings in same API
and what is even more important allows returning both narrow
and wide strings is same query(!) So separation to "Unicode"
and "non-unicode" version is meaningless (and actually requires)
to mix both variants.

The rest of the drivers are character set agnostic and
use plain std::string.
