I would like to work on a patch to accommodate restricted environments
(such as AWS RDS Postgres) which don't allow pg_authid access since their
definition of Superuser is just a regular user with extra permissions.

Would you consider a patch to add a flag to work around this restriction,
Or, do you prefer that this be maintained outside core?

I could add a flag such as --avoid-pgauthid (am open to options) that skips
pg_authid and uses pg_user (but essentially resets all User passwords).
Mostly this is better than not being able to get the dump at all.

I have a fork here (a few weeks old):
