However, I feel that making a decision based on the number of prior and

People have a reasonable expectation that a dump and reload will work, and that can't be dismissed as cavalierly as this.

Maybe a config file option would do the trick, or maybe an option to pg_dump / pg_dumpall to make it generate the extra GRANT statement that would be required.
