Seems much too noisy for me.  That would be appropriate behavior in a
GUI, but psql is not and never will be a GUI.  Martijn's concern about
hacking the behavior depending on where stderr points demonstrates
exactly why we don't want to do this.

I would not object to adding a line count to the COPY command completion
report (on the server side), though.  That's arguably comparable to the
number-of-rows-processed values for INSERT/UPDATE/DELETE.
