This seems pretty dubious to me, in particular that the identical -T option will be passed willy-nilly into the pg_dump runs for every database. That seems more likely to be a foot-gun than something useful. Also, if we believe that this has a safe use-case, why only -T, and not pg_dump's other object selectivity options? regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
