pg_dump can dump from prior-release DBs (back to 7.0 at the moment).
Just point it at the older DB's port.
This is a bit tricky when installing from RPMs, since there's no really
easy way to install just pg_dump and libpq without overwriting your old
server executable, which you don't want to do just yet.

Yeah, the latter is really the important part I think. In 7.4 that is
the default (and only) behavior, but you can get it in 7.3 by using the
switch. So the 7.3 pg_dump should be good enough for this purpose.
