I'd rather avoid another module requirement (as well as the 
overhead of actually using it) if it can be avoided. Would any of 
the existing date styles for Postgres work, e.g.:

greg=# SET datestyle='ISO';

greg=# SELECT a FROM abc LIMIT 1;

 2012-04-09 13:36:43.175082-04

If not, we could also have Postgres change the output as part of 
the SELECT clause it does. Of course, this raises other issues 
if the timestamp will part of the primary key.
