This patch implements the COPY VIEW TODO item.  Do we want to apply it
for 8.2?

I thought the consensus was that it would be better to do

 COPY (SELECT ...) TO ...

rather than requiring the intermediate creation of a view.

Right, but even when we have that, should we be able to dump a view just
like a real table?

Wouldn't it just be this? :

 COPY (SELECT * from viewname) TO ...

I don't see why views should be special. Tables clearly should be because we can open them directly.
