I agree that there's degrees here. The reason I think this is on the
"backpatch" side of the fence is that IME COPY (query) is one of the
most common ways start start a longrunning query, which isn't the case
for some of the other ways to trigger them.

So far I plan to push a fix to both branches, unless some other people
raise a bit stronger objections. I've some things I want to push first
(sequence stuff), so there's definitely some more time for protest.
