This is actually on the to-do list (or at least my personal to-do list).
I had wanted it so that we could run "pg_dump -s" without a running
postmaster for pg_upgrade purposes. Bear in mind though that you'd only
get *one* database connection (no, you can't have multiple standalone
backends at once), so I'm not sure it would really be all that great
as a general-purpose application backend.
