No we don't, but I agree with Peter that pg_dumpall is the place for
this feature in the long run.  A separate contrib script is not going
to get maintained.

What I want to know is why we are adding features at all in a minor
release.  Especially 24 or so hours before release, when there is
certainly no time for any testing worthy of the name.  Contrib or no
contrib, I think this is a bad idea and a bad precedent.
