The code wants INSERT and nothing but, which seems correct to me since
COPY FROM is effectively a series of INSERTs. IIRC it used to accept
UPDATE too; I suspect someone missed this statement in the documentation
when we changed it.
I see the erroneous statement on the COPY reference page; did you notice
it anywhere else?
Now that I look, the GRANT page is confused too: COPY FROM is FROM a
file, not FROM a table. Will fix.
