Text autocasting behavior of geography is breaking geometry functionality
|Reported by:||robe||Owned by:||pramsey|
I have always been against these autocasts especially the text ones. While I would like to remove it for geometry, that will of course break existing functionality, but PLEASE remove it for geography.
This breaks SELECT ST_AsBinary('POINT(1 2)');
and gives this error
ERROR: function st_asbinary(unknown) is not unique LINE 1: SELECT ST_AsBinary('POINT(1 2)')
HINT: Could not choose a best candidate function. You might need to add explicit type casts.
