Currently, an SQL database dump will use COPY INTO syntax. This syntax is fast, but incompatible with loaders such as Java-based Ant sql task, because interfaces such as JDBC do not support the stream input switch necessary to perform the load of the COPY INTO.

It would therefore be nice when the dump could also be made using INSERT INTO statements, such that those tools can just process the dump. Additionally, this may ease migration of data to other databases.

Changeset description:

implement bug #2727: allow using INSERT INTO statements in dump

INSERT INTO statements are more portable, and a necessity when using
loaders that have to adhere to a query & answer protocol, such as most
data source abstractions (most well known and standardised ones: ODBC
and JDBC).
