Yes, this works. The difference is, that for a binary cursor, the column values are not
passed through the type output function. You therefore get the internal representation for a type.
The internal representation is Platform specific, so pay attention when you use a binary cursor
on client x running on hardware y from vendor z accessing a server on hardware a from vendor b.
e.g. for an integer column, you get a C integer number using a binary cursor, whilst you get a
string value like '12345' using the non binary cursor.
