Looking at this again, I'm not 100% sure it'd work quite that cleanly.
I'm not sure you can just skip that PrintTocDataPtr call, depending on
the how the input is coming in...  There might be a way to modify
_PrintData (in pg_backup_custom.c, and the others, which is what is
the function behind PrintTocDataPtr) to somehow check an AH variable
which essentially says "the data command failed, just ignore the input",
and we'd need to set the AH variable somewhere else, perhaps using the
return value setup I described before...

All of this is sounding rather invasive though.  I have to admit that
I'm not exactly a big fan of the pg_dump/pg_restore modular system. :/
