... and instead, define some new behavior that will soon be considered
broken legacy code itself?
There isn't any demand for changing the semantics of COPY, as far as
I've noticed. If we can make it faster with the same semantics that's
great, but I'm not in favor of inventing an alternate that does almost
the same thing but (eg) breaks backslash handling in the name of speed.
