I'd suggest making the format discernible from possible different future

just send a int8 first, containing the format.
Teodor privately suggested something similar. I was thinking of just
sending a version byte, which for now would be '\x01'. An int8 seems like
more future-proofing provision than we really need.
Hm. Isn't that just about the same? I was thinking of the c type int8,
not the 64bit type. It seems cleaner to do a pg_sendint(..., 1, 1) than
to do it manually inside the string.
OK, works for me. I'm tied up for a couple of days, will do this when
I'm back on deck.
