The point of Andres's patch set is to introduce a new technology
called logical decoding; that is, the ability to get a replication
stream that is based on changes to tuples rather than changes to
blocks.  It could also be called logical replication.  In these
patches, our existing replication is referred to as "physical"
replication, which sounds kind of funny to me.  Anyone have another

Logical and Binary replication?

Unfortunately changeset extraction output's can be binary data...

I think "physical" and "logical" are fine and they seem to be well known terminology. Oracle uses those words and I have also seen many places use "physical backup" and "logical backup", for example on Barman's homepage.
