Hmm, okay. My original submission did include a few such changes; for
example, in xml_in and xml_out_internal I saw that the conversion
between xmltype and cstring was identical to the text conversion, so I
went ahead and used the text functions. Feedback upthread suggested
that it was okay to go ahead with casting in identical cases. 
I saw that these changes made it into the commit, so I assumed that it
was the right call.
If we don't want to meddle with xmltype/bytea/VarChar at all, we'll
have to revert those changes, and I'll have to seriously scale back
the cleanup patch I was about to post.
