Imho the default should be text for anything except data. The data should
be in a format similar to a binary cursor. I say similar, because this
probably be converted to a network byte order, so you can restore on another
hardware. Imho calling type output and input functions during backup/restore
is a substantial overhead that would best be avoided.
I agree, that the output should not be compressed by default.
