database/sql/driver: DefaultParameterConverter does not handle reflect.String #10020

Currently inside (switch rv.Kind()), case reflect.String is not handled.
As a result, type like the following can not be scanned without implementing the Valuer interface.

type Test string
func (t Test) Value() (driver.Value, error) {
    return driver.String.ConvertValue(c)

Is it possible to add reflect.String case to the DefaultParameterConverter so the clients of the sql library does not need to implement the Valuer interface themselves?

I'd rather not go down that road and add more. I think it does enough as it is.

Gotta say, I think that adding String would be a big help, making it easier to transparently use a whole lotta types without any further work.
