Another update attached: It occurred to me that the memchr approach is

We currently make the following assumption in the code:

The four characters are the carriage return, line feed, backslash and dot.
I think the requirement might well actually be somewhat stronger than
that: i.e. that none of these will appear as a non-first byte in any
multi-byte client encoding character. If that's right, then we should be
able to write CopyReadLineText without bothering about multi-byte chars.
If it's not right then I suspect we have some cases that can fail now
No, we don't require that, and we do handle it correctly. We use
pg_encoding_mblen to determine the length of each character in
CopyReadLineText when the encoding is a client-only encoding, and only
look at the first byte of each character. In CopyReadAttributesText,
where we have a similar loop, we've already transformed the input to
