Yeah, Chris pointed me to that as well.

I just thought that when DBD::Pg handles "simple" arrays, handling
arrays of tuples wouldn't be much further a step.

On the write side, the above is turned into {{a,...},{b,...}}, so the
only problem is that the inner {},{} should be (),() instead.

On the read side, there might be more complications.

I haven't looked into DBD::Pg, I was just curious if I was overlooking
existing functionality.
