I dusted off the last version of the patch without implementing the
suggestions in this thread between here and there.
I think this is a capability worth having, as I was surprised when it
turned out that it didn't exist when I was looking to make an
improvement to pg_dump. My idea, which I'll get back to when this is
in, was to use special knowledge of heap AM tables to make it possible
to parallelize dumps of large tables by working separately on each
underlying file, of which there could be quite a few for a large one.
Will try to understand the suggestions upthread better and implement
