I see one vote in favor of its inclusion on the grounds it is a bug not
to support multiple -t parameters.  However, is someone objects I will
have to hold it for 7.6.  It needs SGML doc additions which I will do
myself.

Your patch has been added to the PostgreSQL unapplied patches list at:

	http://momjian.postgresql.org/cgi-bin/pgpatches

It will be applied as soon as one of the PostgreSQL committers reviews
and approves it.
