The change in 9.1.3 was to allow the pg_upgrade code which checks if all
the shared librarires are in place to see as equivalent to  I did not modify pg_dump at all, which is where you are
seeing the error.

OK, I am pretty confused by this. 

Here is all I get in the pg_dumpall --binary-upgrade output for
plpython when I create one plpython function:

	-- Name: plpythonu; Type: PROCEDURAL LANGUAGE; Schema: -; Owner: postgres
	SET search_path = public, pg_catalog;
	-- Name: pymax(integer, integer); Type: FUNCTION; Schema: public; Owner: postgres
	CREATE FUNCTION pymax(a integer, b integer) RETURNS integer
	    LANGUAGE plpythonu
	    AS $$
	         if a > b:
	           return a
	         return b
	ALTER FUNCTION public.pymax(a integer, b integer) OWNER TO postgres;

I have repeatedly upgraded from 9.0.X to 9.1.3 and am seeing no
failures.  The big question is what are you doing that is causing the
plpython_call_handler() function to be dumped?  That is an internal
function.  What is your old PG version?  I tested 8.4 and also could not
get the failure you see either.
