I have changed it. The thing is, though, that this function not only performs the convert() function but acts as the engine for convert_to() and convert_from(). Those functions do some silent transformations, in one case passing a text Datum as the first argument and in the other case the returning the result as text. If there's a better way to do this I'll be happy to learn, but it seems to me it would involve some duplication - I tried to avoid that where possible.

Hmm.  One suggestion would be to have an internal function declared
as taking and returning "struct varlena *", with a comment saying that
we depend on text and bytea both being compatible with this.  All three
SQL-visible functions are then thin wrappers around that.


Doesn't strike me as much of an advance, to be honest.

My current top priority is fixing the MSVC build .bat files like Magnus wants, which will take a bit of time.
