Incidentally there *is* a single-byte integer data type in Postgres,
it's called "char" (the quote marks are necessary in SQL due to the
char(n) data type).
It's a bit weird though, mainly because its output format is to output
ascii characters -- kind of like how C's single-byte integer data type
is mainly used to hold ascii characters...
