I had a look at this patch some days ago, and the first question in my
mind was: why is it explicitely on libpq?  Why not have it as a separate
library (say libpqtypes)?  That way, applications not using it would not
need to link to it.  Applications interested in using it would just need
to add another -l switch to their link line.
