First thing I tried, but using virtually identical code to that which we use 
with pg_dump it just hangs. The debugger tells me there's a deadlock - my best 
guess is that stdin/out/err of the child shell & pg_dump processes don't get 
redirected along with their parents. I'm testing on Windows btw - dunno if *nix 
would be different.
