Concerning the binary objects support in Postgresql 7.1, It seems to me that bytea is a long text type and can't be considered as a binary object. Binary objects are handled by low level functions like lo_create, lo_open, ... and their type is oid. 

According to Postgresql's documentation, bytea type must be considered as a text type. 

PoPy handles not quoted long text which is different than binary objects.

Best Regards.
