If it runs as a separate utility, there's no way for it to guarantee
a dump consistent with the previous run of pg_dump, right?

While this is OK, one of the great things about 6.5 is the fact that
pg_dump now makes a consistent dump, you don't have to tear down all
your users before doing a backup.

So wouldn't it be better to fold pg_dumplo into pg_dump?
