Silently dropped on dump, not on restore.

Right. The issue is really complex databases which were developed in 7.2 or
7.1, which is missing the pg_depends information. In that case, pg_dump
seems to get confused about dependency sorting, and a few objects with long
dependency chains simply don't get backed up.
I'll see if I can put together a nice demo for this.
My concern in reporting this is that there are still a lot of commercial users
out there running 7.2, and I'd like to minimize upgrade pain.
