Sorry about the naive question, but if someone has set the GUC bytea_output
= 'escape', then the intention seem to be to obtain the output in 'escape'
format for bytea.
With this, if an installcheck is done, that might also have been done with
the expectation that the output will be in 'escape' format. In that case,
how much is it justified to hard code the format for regression database?
However, I agree that there are not many bytea outputs in the current
