Yeah. But the only real point of the change is cleanliness, and if it's
injecting ugliness into clients then that argument loses a lot of its
force. I looked at pg_dump a bit and it definitely would get uglier
--- not really more complicated, but defaults would get handled a bit
differently from everything else. Seems like a fertile source of bugs.
So maybe we'd better forget the idea :-(
