I saw your note that you have to specify the types for date values
etc.  Is this really desirable or even necessary?  Can't you specify
the type as unknown (OID 705, I believe)?

At work, we recently used to typelessness of Perl's DBD::Pg with great
effect, introducing a more compact, type-safe representation for a few
columns, without having to change all the existing Perl scripts
accessing the database.  That's why I'm wondering...

(And we might be using Python instead of Perl today.  Lack of a decent
PostgreSQL module for Python meant it was very hard to argue against
using Perl ...)
