Can you show a plausible use-case for such a thing?
A not-uncommon case in other DBs is to handle insert/update code where
insert is the most likely result. Not sure if this is relevant to scripts:

Begin;
...do stuff...
insert into....
<trap duplicate index error and do update instead>
update...
...more stuff...
commit;


Also, the blunder-on-regardless approach is popular in pg_dump, or so I'm
told ;-).
