The JDBC driver can stream the write to the server, but the server will
still read the entire stream before writing it to disk, so it's a client

The JDBC driver doesn't support streaming reads, nor does any other client
interface. You would need to extend the frontend/backend protocol to
return some sort of pointer to the bytea reference rather than the whole
thing. This will still require the server to store the whole bytea result
somewhere to allow it to be pointed to.
Perhaps you should think about using large objects instead of bytea?
