You cannot control the FE/BE protocol from inside a user function.

Why? A byte is a byte. There is no possible way that you will ever
save enough microseconds from this to repay the development time you
will waste trying to kluge the system to do it.
If it's the overhead of parsing the SELECT you are unhappy with,
you could look at using the "fast path" function call protocol
to invoke your functions.
