Sorry about that, dude. :-( I claim peer pressure, a mob atmosphere,
and a distinct lack of my wife's editing-for-sensitivity finesse as my
(admittedly weak) excuses.

If simple redirection creates in inavlid file, then we have a problem
-- probably not re-opening stdout in binary mode. This is a pre-1.0
issue, in my opinion.

I'd be perfectly happy with --file (-F) applied to both the 'dump' and
'load' subcommands. And the change would be pretty simple, I think,
though IMO post-1.0.
