Ability to load topogeoms using shp2pgsql

In writing chapters of the book, one exercise is to load the data with shp2pgsql and then a second step to load into a specific topology.
Aside from speed issues, I can't see why we can't just go straight to a topogeom column much like we do with geography is -G is chosen.
This would require another switch for topology name and name of topology. The only tricky part is that for the toTopogeom calls we need the generated layer id, which would require a connection to the database to get unless we have a lookup function of some sort that can lookup the layerid based on topo column table/name.
