Your analysis is accurate. You can spend your time on whatever _you_
think is important. If someone wants to take on COPY VIEW and do all
the work to make it 100%, then they are welcome to do it, but if you
don't feel it is worth it, you can just leave it. If it isn't 100% by
the time we start beta, it is kept for a later release.
Alvaro has already indicated some problems with the patch (the objection
email is in the patches queue), so it is up to someone to correct at
least that, and if other objections are found, they have to correct
those too before 8.2 beta starts.
