You seem to have missed the point completely - Neil wanted to suppress
the normal progress messages *on stderr* so that he'd only get an email
report when there was an abnormal event.  That request seemed fine to
me, though I thought the patch itself might have some portability
issues.  If it were recoded to follow the style of the existing boolean
options in pg_dumpall then I'd recommend accepting it.
