I could see adding more support in libpq for converting native int and
float types to and from the existing on-the-wire binary formats, rather
than making applications do it for themselves as is the case now. But I
think you've got 0 chance of persuading anyone that we should try to
support platform-dependent on-the-wire formats --- the potential
performance advantages are minimal and the added complexity large.
IOW, 1, 3 yes, 2 no.
