Based on what I know from this stuff (OOM libpq and other stuff
remnants), one 'd' message means one row. fe-protocol3.c and
CopySendEndOfRow in backend's copy.c are confirming that as well. I am
indeed afraid that having extra logic to get chunks of data will
require extending the protocol with a new message type for this
