+2 then :)

1. Current behavior is to issue the « -i warning » even when having minor
    version mismatch, getting rid of this would be great... even more so now
    we know there's almost no risk here.

2. Major version mismatch seems to be one of the major migration pitfalls out
    there. The famous "You have to dump with the newer pg_dump version against
    the current production setup" cookbook entry will certainly be better
    embedded into the code.
