I did some experimentation just now, and could not get mysql to accept a
command longer than about 1 million bytes. It complains about Got a packet bigger than 'max_allowed_packet' bytes
which seems a bit odd because max_allowed_packet is allegedly set to
16 million, but anyway I don't think people are going to be loading any
million-row tables using single INSERT commands in mysql either.


Strange. Last time I checked I thought MySQL dump used 'multivalue lists in inserts' for dumps, for the same reason that we use COPY
