I don' t necessarily agree with this.  First of all, the server gives
you an oid for the column which introduces the dependency...this has
been the case for a while now.  Secondly, why shouldn't the client
library understand the data the server hands out, at least for
built-in types.

Usings arrays in client side apps is a huge pain...and not efficient
for large arrays.  Same for the variable length geometry types.
