I wonder if there's a way to have the server process the matching?  That
way we could have LIKE expressions in the switches, which would be
simpler in the code and more powerful.  I don't know how pg_dump works
so I can't really answer the question.  We desperately need this
capability however, as patches have been floating since before 8.0 and
we still don't have it.
