I think this is a suggestion/comment!

pg_dump man page:

              Dump only the schema (data definitions), no data

I think this use of the word schema is confusing, meaning data
definitions, whereas elsewhere in the man page schema are used as a
namespace definition.

              Dump the contents of schema only. If this option is  not
              speci- fied,  all  non-system  schemas  in  the target
              database will be dumped

It would be nice if this could be a comman separated list (like set
search_path; A,info,public etc).
