Was this a polite question whether I volunteer to write that patch? ;-)
I've never used pg_filedump and I'm not quite sure what exactly is
needed, but it seem simple enough to do it. OK, I know the iceberg that
sank Titanic seemed small too ...
I think I'll move the integrity check to the db, so that it's possible
to check the column lengths etc. (pageinspect seems like a good module
to mutilate in this direction) but I still believe it'd be useful to
have an offline tool for basic checks. Would pg_filedump be a resonable
tool to do that?
