Frankly, I don't find doing backups with psql this way interesting. I'm a
bit astonished that anyone's doing it, really. Most of the time I'm doing
anything more complicated than pg_basebackup I've got more flexible tools
at hand than psql too.

\gset should be a workaround for anyone who really wants to do this in psql
for some reason.
