Allow extensions to add new backup targets

Enterprise / PostgreSQL - Robert Haas [postgresql.org] - 15 March 2022 17:22 UTC

Commit 3500ccc39b0dadd1068a03938e4b8ff562587ccc allowed for base backup targets, meaning that we could do something with the backup other than send it to the client, but all of those targets had to be baked in to the core code. This commit makes it possible for extensions to define additional backup targets.

Patch by me, reviewed by Abhijit Menon-Sen.
