Changeset bcc430e78d4c made by Stefan Manegold Stefan.Manegold@cwi.nl in the MonetDB repo, refers to this bug.

For complete details, see https//devmonetdborg/hg/MonetDB?cmd=changeset;node=bcc430e78d4c

Changeset description:

revert undocumented change of changeset [770e047b548c](https://dev.monetdb.org/hg/MonetDB?cmd=changeset;node=770e047b548c)  "tab" -> "tsv" -> "tab"

changeset [770e047b548c](https://dev.monetdb.org/hg/MonetDB?cmd=changeset;node=770e047b548c)  changed the name of mclient's tabular / tab-separated
output formatter from "tab" to "tsv" without either documenting this
change in the checkin message or updating any related documentation
(--help messages, manpage) accordingly.

To fix bug #6534, I herewith revert that change, i.e., mclient's
tabular / tab-seperated output formatter is now again called "tab"
as it used to be and as all documentation still claims.

(If you prefer "tsv" over "tab" after all, please feel free to change that
 correctly and consistently in all code, documentation and test output.)
