 I found that the current driver did not support well in

First of all, it try to get the default character set by
calling "show variables like 'character_set'", in version
4.1.1, this variable is revised into 'character_set_client,
_result etc. Please take a better way to determine the
default charset

Moreover, it parse the SQL inside th method 'SpliteSQL'
in byte. Characters in different encoding may consist of
sql special character, parasing sql in byte level is not a
good way to do so. I have tried to edit the driver myself
how about I have failed. For example, in UTF8 encoding,
chinese character are in 3 bytes and bytes may
contains ', \ etc.

Will it be better if we can provide a setting to alter the
default session charset in the connectionstring? i.e., by
