Possibly not. It's been requested often enough, but multiple -t and -n
switches might be sufficient.

I'm not sure you can ignore the issue completely. The proposal you're
supporting included being able to pick out a specific table with
and without any quoting rules it would then become impossible to deal
with names containing dots. Are we willing to blow off that case?
Or is it better to drop that part of the proposal?
