[Ironpython-users] Survey question: Should reading data from a column of type "adGUID" return an instance of class "uuid"?

I am in the midst of doing major refactoring of adodbapi.  One of the fixes
I recently included was a patch so that UUID fields do not get truncated.
That patch is in, but it made me start thinking:

   When I read in data from decimal, money and date-time columns, I return
those as instances of the appropriate Python class: decimal or datetime.

This is a survey -- please give your opinion:

  Should I also be treating columns of "adGUID" data specially by returning
them as instances of class "uuid", rather than as raw byte streams?
