Of course, after you've done all that work, you've got something that is
of exactly zero use to its supposed principal use-case, pg_dump. pg_dump
will still have to support server versions that predate all these fancy
new dump functions, and that pretty much ensures that most of pg_dump's
core functionality will still be on the client side. Or, if you try to
finesse that problem by making sure the new server APIs correspond to
easily-identified pieces of pg_dump code, you'll probably end up with APIs
that nobody else wants to use :-(.
In any case, I quite agree with the sentiment that this is not a suitable
problem for a GSOC project.
