If you want to make a complete, generic backup procedure, you'll have to
extract the necessary knowledge from the source of pg_dump / pg_dumpall.
AFAICT, there's no other place where this knowledge is documented.

In case something application-specific is enough, it's best to use a
domain specific data format for output.

HTH,
Markus
