Attached is a patch to hopefully make pg_dump a lot more useful.
I started out by making it simply able to avoid dumping a single
table, but, inspired by David Fetter's patch last November, also
added in support for multiple items and limited wildcard matching.
-n and -N control the schemas, and -t and -T control the tables.
Wildcards can be a star at the start, the end, or on both sides
of a term. The patch acts inclusively with conflicts: the -t
option trumps the -N option.
Some examples:
To dump all tables beginning with the string "slony", plus
all tables with the word "log" inside of them:
pg_dump -t "slony*" -t "*log*"
To dump all schemas except "dev" and "qa", and all tables
except those ending in "large":
pg_dump -N "dev" -N "qa" -T "*large"
