Here's a patch to do so. After removing the discussed bogus
information, there were only two notes which I still found relevant,
so I stuck those in the appropriate header comments.
I didn't preserve the comment about "blank username & group" for
tar'ed files, since there are already some comments along these lines
in tarCreateHeader(), and these are "postgres" not "blank" nowadays.
The pg_dump/pg_restore man pages seemed to already do a good enough
job of showing usage examples that I didn't find anything worth adding
