Could an option be added so that mysqldump output one .sql.gz file per table?
If multiple tables are backed up, all table files should be put in one .tar file per database
and if multiple databases are backed up, all database files should be put in one .tar (again).

This would make it much easier to restore a single table, especially if the entire database is very large.

How to repeat:
