same syntax I designed and didn't implement, because it isn't too
readable (my opinion). But I am not against - just thinking so
separate function can be better.

%l is always quoted
it is designed for syntax: SELECT integer '10';
%s versus %v ... %s is never quoted X %v is quoted when it is
necessary, NULL is showed as empty string for %s and as "NULL" for %v.
%s is used for messages (the behave is same like "concat"), %v is used
for SQL statement building

every datatype has typecategory attribute
typname │ typcategory
int8 │ N
int2 │ N
int4 │ N
regproc │ N
oid │ N
float4 │ N
float8 │ N
money │ N
numeric │ N
regprocedure │ N
regoper │ N
regoperator │ N
regclass │ N
regtype │ N
regconfig │ N
regdictionary │ N
cardinal_number │ N
so these types are unquoted

you have a true - it should be fixed
