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