If it's going to break that many interfaces, then it's not going to be worth
the hassle.

char(n) does not support embedded nulls.  Offhand I believe that bytea
is the only datatype that does, and even then you have to write 'em
with a backslash-escape --- ie, send "\000" not an actual null.

Fixing this is not likely to happen soon, if ever, because it would
involve a massive overhaul of the datatype I/O system, with such
side-effects as breaking every user-defined datatype in existence.
Textual representations of datatypes are C strings --- ie,
null-terminated --- and all datatype I/O routines depend on that.
