If I did it the way you suggest, however, and do something like STRING(str(unknown_thing)) so that it was sure to be escaped properly, that seems like it would be a useful thing.
Yes, the idea is to convert ot str and then to excape it with STRING.
I could duplicate the hash and purify it myself, and it'd still work with pgasync too, but I'd need to write more code for it that would be unnecessary with the above. With the abvoe I could pass down as well an url and have it converted to string automatically by pgasync.
The main cons is decreased strictness that might actually hide bugs if somebody pass down a weird type. So if you don't want to do that, I can as well try to purfy the stuff myself.
