That's exactly what happens already!
If you were under the impression that when you send an integer to the
database that it travels to the server as a 32-bit binary value, you
were mistaken. SQL is text. Even BLOBs are not immune from this.
If you want a database that deals with binary data on the wire, MySQL is
not the right choice. You want to look at something more like Berkeley DB.
