The objective when trying to solve this for the Apartment library itself

I believe pg_dump was the only way to satisfy the second point. The
reason we'd want to infer the create statements via pg_dump is, so we
don't need to keep database migration files in sync with a 'create new
schema' SQL script. It adds risk that they get out of sync, causing
inconsistencies in new schemas created by the library.
Seems to me your best hope is to make a plea on --hackers for a flag
that turns off schema qualification of object names.
Assuming there's no other way to infer the create statements from the
public schema, Ruby on Rails' structure.sql could probably be used as a
starting point for the 'create new schema' SQL file. It's similar
already, however it's also generated via pg_dump (having the same issues
as Apartment library).
This is outside the realms of this mail group though.
