Thorsten, Dominique,

Yes, I agree.

As a PostgreSQL, it also is important to me to perform transfer in binary mode
instead of textual, also for performance.

I have exchanged a few e-mails with Artyom and our opinions regarding
text vs binary transfer mode are different here.
SOCI and CppDb use text mode.

(I've worked on binary mode for SOCI. Unfortunately, SOCI has lost the lead
developer and its future is uncertain. If I manage to release binary mode,
it will be as separate/forked library, I guess.)

Best regards,

Mateusz Loskot,
