I noticed that if you create a dump on a database containing a money
column and a certain locale, this dump is not restorable on a database
with a different locale.

Most notably, I tried dumping the regression database (which is created
with --locale=C), and then importing it into a database of my own
creation, which uses --locale=fr_CA.UTF-8.

Due to the thousands separator being different, the regression database
is not restorable on the french database.

The regression test uses for input the unadorned form:

insert into rtest_emp values ('wiech', '5000.00');

But on output, pg_dump uses the localized form:

COPY money (a) FROM stdin;
$7 000,00

Surely pg_dump should be using the unadorned form as well?
