I think this idea has merit.  Prepare a patch and put it into the next
commit fest.

I see the problem that since the dump order is in general not
deterministic, this will cause random reordering in your master file
that includes all the individual files.

Then again, making the dump order deterministic is a problem that can be
solved (I suppose), so maybe starting there would be a good step.  But
it will require a small amount of in-depth pg_dump hacking.
