I think what you want is to hack the fe/be protocol so you can pass
binary data in the COPY from stdin/to stdout datastream. The problem is
that the message protocol for COPY is ASCII strings (ugh). Change it to
be counted strings and away you go. (There are more changes that I want
to see in this area than that, but that should get you the functionality
you want...) backend/commands/copy.c and PQgetline/PQputline on the
frontend side are the things to look at. Also read the SGML docs'
chapter about the fe/be protocol.
