no, did I? But what is wrong with something like:
\COPY 'SELECT foo,bar,baz FROM footable WHERE baz=5 ORDER BY foo' TO
which would just run the query (in the backend of course) and
format the output just like copy would...
I mean, ok, when its in the backend, its fine too (beside the
data expansion if you dont implement compression...)
but I thougt implementing in the frontend would be easier...
