On 3rd of February 2022, Robert Haas committed patch:
Allow archiving via loadable modules. Running a shell command for each file to be archived has a lot of overhead and may not offer as much error checking as you want, or the exact semantics that you want. So, offer the option to call a loadable module for each file to be archived, rather than running a shell command. Also, add a 'basic_archive' contrib module as an example implementation that archives to a local directory. Nathan Bossart, with a little bit of kibitzing by me.
