Good idea.  If anyone want so pursue it, I'd strongly suggest building
it as a contrib module rather than dedicated syntax, because I'm not
sure there'd be any consensus on adding syntax for it to core.

Actually, though, I wonder how much faster it would be than CREATE
TABLE AS?  Block-level copy should be faster than tuple-level copy,
but I'm not sure whether it would be a lot faster or only slightly
