Thanks! > Out of curiosity, what is the motivation? I'm the owner of Npgsql, the open-source .NET driver for PostgreSQL, which is a binary-first driver. That is, working with types that have no binary I/O is possible but awkward. I hope the general direction is (or will be) to have binary I/O for all supported types, both for compatibility with binary-first consumers such as Npgsql and for general efficiency.
