Personally, I feel that *both* would be useful, and I'd be unhappy with
any implementation which didn't include both.  That being said, the
users that are likely to run into this problem will, imnsho, be much
happier if we tell them "oh, just flip option X in your pg_dump" than
"go edit the .sql file with vi and find where the problem cases are and
fix them".  Obviously, we should caveat our response that this will only
fix the pg_dump/restore problem and that their applications may need to
be fixed.

	Thanks,
