There was a patch against 7.4 that provided direct JDBC access to
PostgreSQL's COPY. (I have it installed here and *love* it - it
gives outstanding performance.) However, it hasn't made into an
official release yet. I don't know why, perhaps there's
a problem yet to be solved with it ('works for me', though)?
Is this still on the board? I won't upgrade past 7.4 without it.
