I imagined that \. could cause some semantic trouble. I went ahead anyway 
because I wanted "myprocess |" (or a "cat myfile |") to be able to execute 
more than one copyfrom and \. seemed a good choice (postgres). I shouldn't 
have touched the MapiClient, though. I like that you fixed it. Would be 
acceptable to introduce the \. without touching the MapiClient? (changes 
could be confined to ascii_io.mx)
