If you could issue an "update" type of command, any other data needed
for the new copy of the object could be copied internally to the
server, saving the round-trip of that data over the wire to the
client.  I know from my own experience using Postgres that this is a
big win for some operations.  In this particular case there are
several megabytes of data involved, so there would be a significant
efficiency gain, IMO.
