Nope.  There's no support for binary COPY in the frontend/backend
protocol.  This is one of the things I'd like to see fixed next time
we change the protocol.  (That's a sufficiently painful thing that we
don't do it often --- the last time was release 6.4 --- but we're
considering a protocol rev for the next development cycle, 7.4.)
