The bit you call out above is for single row mode.  Binary mode is a slippery 
slope, with or without the proposed callback.

Let's remember that one of the biggest, often overlooked, gains when using an 
ORM is that it abstracts all this mess away.  The goal here is to prevent all 
the ORM/framework folks from having to implement protocol.  Otherwise they get 
to wait on libpq to copy from the socket to the PGconn buffer to the PGresult 
structure to their buffers.  The callback keeps the slowest guy on the 
team...on the bench.
