I see you've committed a chunk of this now. Does it make sense to do
#1 for every data type we support, or should we be more selective than
that? My gut feeling would be to add it across the board and
introduce an opr_sanity check for it. The general utility of adding
it to deprecated types like abstime is perhaps questionable, but it
strikes me that the value of making everything consistent probably
outweighs the cost of a few extra lines of code.
Are you planning to do anything about #2 or #3?
