Here is an updated version of the COPY \x patch.  It is the first patch
Also, I realized that if we support \x in COPY, we should also support
\x in strings to the backend.  This is the second patch.

Do we really want to do any of these things?  We've been getting beaten
up recently about the fact that we have non-SQL-spec string escapes
(ie, all the backslash stuff) so I'm a bit dubious about adding more,
especially when there's little if any demand for it.

I don't object too much to the COPY addition, since that's outside any
spec anyway, but I do think we ought to think twice about adding this
to SQL literal handling.

+1 from me on this for Tom -- please don't break spec compliance!

Best Regards,
Michael Paesold
