Whatever format_type gives you.
I wrote format_type for exactly this purpose a few weeks ago, but I
figured I let you get the glory for making pg_dump use it. :-) psql uses
it as well.
Note: IMO it should not be an *option* to use format_type, it should
always be used. It's nice for encapsulation on the programming side and
there's no reason for using any other type names.
