I have reviewed this patch.  Basically, CSV is enabled by specifying
more than one delimiter character to COPY, e.g. DELIMITER ',"' or
DELIMITER ',""'.  Is this API good for folks?

(if not I'll be displeased, as it is what was the general consensus about a month ago)

Prior to 7.2, a multi-character delimiter could be specified, but only the first character was used. 7.2 release notes state:

* COPY DELIMITERS string must be exactly one character (Tom)

I am a little worried about multibyte too, as you mentioned.

I am not sure that CSVs even make sense in a multibyte world. If not, it would make sense to disable it in such a case.

(Is that your only worry?)
