Proper Python type for bytea values

Reported by: cito Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: 5.1
Component: DB API 2 Version: 4.1
Keywords: Cc:


Currently, Pygres can accept and return bytea values only as strings.

Using file streams for bytea as implemented in psycopg2, might be a much better solution.

This could be made configurable with a switch that would be set to off by default in 5.x, and then in 6.x the switch could be flipped.

Actually I don't remember what I wanted to do here and what psycopg2 does differently. You can already use file streams for large objects in pg and with copy_from/to in pgdb.
