There certainly is. From my PostgreSQL logs on the database that RT is

    UPDATE sessions SET a_session = $1 WHERE id = $2

with a giant binary blob as $1"

    DETAIL:  parameters: $1 = 'BQgDAAAACQQRD1

RT should really be using DBD::Pg's native bytea support on PostgreSQL,
not base64-encoding binary for storing in the database, btw, something like:

  $rv = $sth->bind_param($param_num, $bind_value,
                         { pg_type => DBD::Pg::PG_BYTEA });

per http://search.cpan.org/~rudy/DBD-Pg/Pg.pm
