I don't think so because much of the quoting has to be done in the
backend, and it would be hard for pg_dump to munge the dump file before
sending it to the backend --- it doesn't have enough knowledge, I am
afraid. It could try targeting just new keywords, but I am worried that
would cause more problems than it fixes.
