I think one thing to try would to define a special kind of exception
that can safely be caught and ignored. Then, input functions can
communicate benign parse errors by doing their own cleanup first, then
throwing this exception, and then the COPY subsystem can deal with it.
Anyway, this patch is clearly not doing this, so I'm setting it to
returned with feedback.
