Nowhere, it's discarded.

ecpg gets PGRES_COPY_OUT as a result from the execution and just calls
PQendcopy() without reading the data. The same happens btw with
PGRES_COPY_IN. It's working like this since the get-go in the sources I
inherited from Linux Tolke. I guess we could add this to the todo list
as a feature request.
Patches are welcome of course. :-)
