Well, the point is that the commands it emits will cause the eventual
restore to go through the root.  Anyway, I think trying to avoid using
a verb altogether is going to result in a very stilted option name.

I notice that the option list already includes some references to
"insert", so maybe "--insert-via-partition-root"?  Although you could
argue that that's confusing when we're using COPY.
