Well, it seems to me that currently the FK needs in term of existing indexes
and locks, and some other object lock needs, are all hardwired. Is it even
safe to consider having the locks needed for certain commands not be
Provided I'm not all wrong here, I don't see how having something more
flexible at restore time than at build time is a win. The drawback is that
whenever you change a lock need in commands, you have to remember teaching
pg_restore about it too.
So my vote here is in favor of hardwired knowledge of pg_restore, matching
target server code assumptions and needs.
