You should be -- very nice work!

Two minor comments:
First, in 7.2+ sequences are based on 8 byte integers on platforms which
support them, so the default maxvalue is 9223372036854775807 instead of
Second, the currval function returns the "value most recently obtained
by nextval for this sequence in the current server process" -- i.e. it
only shows the last value obtained in your own session, and will give an
error if nextval has not already been called within the current session.
If you decide to do a CBT on use of the bytea data type, I'd be happy to
try to help.
Take care (and Happy Holidays!),
