The community is unlikely to add a new LOAD DATA command that does
_almost_ everything COPY does. We are much more likely to incrementally
The problem with a new command is that it becomes unclear when you
should use COPY and when LOAD DATA, and it confuses users, and has
maintenance overhead. If Bizgres wants a new command name, go for it,
but it is unlikely that the community release is going to go in that
direction, unless there is a fundamental agreement that COPY is broken
and needs a major revamp, and I have heard no talk of that.
