Right, but the parallelization is going to happen sometime, and it is
going to happen in the context of pg_restore.  So I think it's pretty
silly to argue that no one will ever want this feature to work in

To extend the example I just gave to Stephen, I think a fairly probable
scenario is where you only need to tweak some "before" object
definitions, and then you could do

pg_restore --schema-before-data whole.dump >before.sql
edit before.sql
psql -f before.sql target_db
pg_restore --data-only --schema-after-data -d target_db whole.dump

which (given a parallelizing pg_restore) would do all the time-consuming
steps in a fully parallelized fashion.
