SQLite expects the database path to be in the UTF-8 encoding (see the
sqlite3_open() documentation for details).

I guess you have the path as std::wstring or wchar_t*. I suppose this
will be a fairly common stumbling block so maybe we should just add
the std::wstring/wchar_t* constructor versions to odb::sqlite::database
for Windows. Let me know if this will work for you and I will go ahead
and add them.
