I want to create a database dump with mysqldump where all binary data output is in hex format. I have some tables containing blob data and those tables are dumped into the nice hex format when I use --hex-blob.

But, I also have tables with columns of type polygon. That data is still dumped in some kind of bin format. Can I make mysqldump dump polygon data and have to output in the nice hex format?
