Do we want to intentionally make binary format a second-class
Well, it's not exactly a first-class citizen; compare for instance
amount of verbiage in the docs about text I/O formats versus the
about binary formats. But my question isn't about that; it's about
aclitem should be considered a first-class citizen. It makes me
uncomfortable that client apps are looking at it at all, because any
that do are bound to get broken in the future, even assuming that
get the right answers today. I wonder how many such clients are up
speed for per-column privileges and non-constant default privileges
instance. And sepgsql is going to cut them off at the knees.

Technically, at eye glance, I didn't seen in sepgsql modifications to
acl.h. So, I think, aclitem will be unaffected. In any way sepgsql needs
some way to present access rights to administrator it may use own model,
or aclitem, too.
JDBC, and other applications may use aclitem to get just information
about who has what access. I think psql does this in same manner as
JDBC, by calling select from pg_class. But if user, through psql, JDBC
or other driver. will invoke "select * from pg_class" it will fail with
"no binary output", because it is plain user query.
Currently proposed binary output has space for 4 more privs. Am I
