Hi, In my practice I quite often face the problem of bloated tables. I usually use pgstattuple to perform investigations. I also create a tool that uses UPDATEs based way to smoothly remove bloat (https://github.com/grayhemp/pgtoolkit), and it partially depends on pgstatuple too. To be more precise it gets much more effective with pgstattuple.
Sometimes its installation leads to a headache, because it requires an approve from security and admins, it also a problem when I have a read-only access or no access to the database at all (eg. when consulting somebody by IM or phone). I think I am not the only person who faced these nuances. According to this I would like to know if it is possible to move pgstattuple to core? And if it is I would like to request this feature.
