convert_numeric_to_scalar() in src/backend/utils/adt/selfuncs.c

the problem seems to be that we are asking for each type of numeric
and of course that doesn't know nothing about unsigned integers so its
treating it as a non-numeric. don't know what to suggest here? a
column in pg_type that identifies it? a hook?

    switch (typid)
        case BOOLOID:
            return (double) DatumGetBool(value);
        case INT2OID:
            return (double) DatumGetInt16(value);
        case INT4OID:
            return (double) DatumGetInt32(value);
        case INT8OID:
            return (double) DatumGetInt64(value);
        case FLOAT4OID:
            return (double) DatumGetFloat4(value);
        case FLOAT8OID:
            return (double) DatumGetFloat8(value);
        case NUMERICOID:
            /* Note: out-of-range values will be clamped to +-HUGE_VAL */
            return (double)
        case OIDOID:
        case REGPROCOID:
        case REGOPEROID:
        case REGOPERATOROID:
        case REGCLASSOID:
        case REGTYPEOID:
        case REGCONFIGOID:
            /* we can treat OIDs as integers... */
            return (double) DatumGetObjectId(value);

     * Can't get here unless someone tries to use scalarltsel/scalargtsel on
     * an operator with one numeric and one non-numeric operand.
    elog(ERROR, "unsupported type: %u", typid);
    return 0;
