Not having type send/recv functions is somewhat dangerous; it can
cause problems for libraries that run everything through the binary
wire format.  I'd give jsonb a pass on that, being a new type, but
would be concerned if hstore had that ability revoked.

send/recv functions are also needed for binary-format COPY. IMHO jsonb must have send/recv functions. All other built-in types have them, except for types like 'smgr', 'aclitem' and 'any*' that no-one should be using as column types.
