The worst-case scenario here is that your server fails and you discover
that all your backups are corrupt because you didn't notice pg_dump was
failing due to statement_timeout.  (Maybe it just recently started to
fail because your biggest table grew past the point at which the COPY
command exceeded statement_timeout.)

I'm not excited about the other ones but I can see the argument for
making pg_dump force the timeout to 0.
