It's not. If we really want to tackle this root and branch without

data items as binary in the grammar, e.g.

  create function myfunc(myarg binary bytea) returns binary bytea
language plperl as $$ ...$$;

This ought to be a property of data type plus language, not a property of a function.

Why should it?

And how would you do it in such a way that it didn't break legacy code?

My GUC proposal would have made it language+type specific, but Tom didn't like that approach.
