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.
