I have used it, I don't think I'm actually using right now.  But, it was 
very handy. (Once I finally figured out the format through trial and error,
ouch!)  It is very nice to be able to just dump tuples in, instead of having
to format them to text, then the database has to put them back to binary
again.  So, an alternative with a clean interface would be very much
appreciated.
