what's the problem with COPY view TO, other than you don't like it? :-)

The problem is that it required a ugly piece of code.  Not supporting it
means we can keep the code nice.  The previous discussion led to this
conclusion anyway so I don't know why we are debating it again.

What is so ugly about it? I haven't looked at the code, but I am curious to know.

I also don't recall the consensus being quite so clear cut. I guess there is a case for saying that if it's not allowed then you know that "COPY relname TO" is going to be fast. But, code aesthetics aside, the reasons for disallowing it seem a bit thin, to me.
