IIRC, when debate was taking place on whether SOCI should be accepted,
there was concern regarding the lack of binary format communications
between the client and server. Adding a binary communications layer to SOCI
was non-trivial at the time.

How hard would it be to use binary transports? (when available, of course)

In performance critical scenarios, this is a major benefit.
