Rumours only.

Feedback from someone else looking to the problem last year. IIRC there
was a feeling that if we didn't have to search for delimiters the COPY
FROM input parsing could be easier.

Vague recollection that the COPY TO uses the slower API for getting heap
attributes, but didn't seem to show up when I profiled few months back.

I'm not personally proposing to take those thoughts any further.
