Ok, checking the file signature seems reasonable.

No. Advice to use Query Tool instead or sth like that.

For backup only, not restore; we don't want to offer arbitrary scripts 
to pg_restore.

Well, if you insist we might enable server status on servers too :-)
I admit we should have a look at the context menu. I deliberately left 
backup/restore out of it, because it's not so often in use, though it 
belongs there.

Maybe we should *create* the context menu on-demand, instead of 
enabling/disabling. Disabled menus always signal "this item might be 
enabled under some circumstances", which is usually not true in that 
very context.
