Yes, I thought about that. I tried indexes and it failed because of the
heap_open call. I wonder if heap_open() is the place for more checks,
not even COPY: Probably not.
In fact, there is no reason you shouldn't be able to COPY out a view,
except that it doesn't work. :-)
Here are the reltypes. I didn't want to start disabling them from COPY
until I was sure. SEQUENCE is invalidated in COPY FROM, but not COPY
TO. No idea why. Anyway, I guess I was trying to avoid the research to
do it right. I will add it to my list.
#define RELKIND_INDEX 'i' /* secondary index */
#define RELKIND_RELATION 'r' /* ordinary cataloged heap */
#define RELKIND_SPECIAL 's' /* special (non-heap) */
#define RELKIND_SEQUENCE 'S' /* SEQUENCE relation */
#define RELKIND_UNCATALOGED 'u' /* temporary heap */
#define RELKIND_TOASTVALUE 't' /* moved off huge values */
#define RELKIND_VIEW 'v' /* view */
