Hum, sorry to be late, but wasn't one of the supposed strenghts of
pg_dump supposed to be that you could take a dump and load it on a
different RDBMS?  I haven't tried it so I don't know if it works, but
this patch takes out the ability to do that -- no one else will accept
WITH/WITHOUT OIDS, so the dump will have to be modified.  Is a switch
provided to stop the emission of those modifiers?
