This introduces a deprecation cycle to change the behavior of the default point type in the PostgreSQL adapter. The old behavior will continue to be available for the immediate future as `:legacy_point`. The current behavior of returning an `Array` causes several problems, the most significant of which is that we cannot differentiate between an array of points, and a point itself in the case of a column with the `point` type. The attributes API gives us a reasonable way to have a proper deprecation cycle for this change, so let's take advantage of it. If we like this change, we can also add proper support for the other geometric types (line, lseg, box, path, polygon, and circle), all of which are just aliases for string today. Fixes #20441
