Quoting from the pg_dump source code:
* We want to dump the opfamily only if (1) it contains "loose" operators * or functions, or (2) it contains an opclass with a different name or * owner. Otherwise it's sufficient to let it be created during creation * of the contained opclass, and not dumping it improves portability of * the dump.
I guess if it contains no opclasses and no operators either, this code won't dump it, but isn't it rather useless in such a case?
