pg_dump actually does support -Z0, though.  Well, sort of.  It outputs
plain text.  Rather than plain text wrapped in some kind of dummy gzip
header, which is what I had naively expected.

Is that what -Z0 in pg_basebackup should do as well, just output
uncompressed tar data, and not add the ".gz" to the "base.tar" file
