-N seems an entirely random name for the switch ... can't we do better?
I see that -t, -T, -s, -S, -x and -X are all taken, which lets out the
obvious choices ... but I'd rather have no single-letter abbreviation at
all than one that has zero relationship to the function of the switch.
Would -1 work, or just confuse people?

Also, I don't actually see any point to this in psql, as you can
always do
	begin;
	\i file
	end;
It's only pg_restore that you really need it for.  Dropping the psql
part of the patch might give us a little more maneuvering room as far
as the switch name goes.
