I also switched pqexec to ascii and reverted the recordset change - the 
problem being we don't know the format of the original field (the internal 
field types aren't documented very well) so if someone does an int() on a text 
field that needs to work as does a char*() on an int field... in other drivers 
I've asked for a limited selection of binary formats from the server and just 
do on the fly conversion - not so easy with postgres since in binary mode it 
returns native data and you'd need to know the internal format of every type 
that might be returned..
