Oh, OK.  When I was testing, I didn't realize that pg_restore doesn't do
anything unless you specify the database via -d, but I see it in the
docs now:

       pg_restore can operate in two modes: If a database name is
       specified, the  archive  is  restored  directly  into  the
       database.  Otherwise, a script containing the SQL commands
       necessary to rebuild the database is created (and  written
       to a file or standard output), similar to the ones created
       by the pg_dump plain text format. Some of the options con-
       trolling  the  script  output  are  therefore analogous to
       pg_dump options.
