Having a schema that's only used for importing data in batch jobs
doesn't sound too unreasonable. It could then be cleaned in a simple
"TRUNCATE SCHEMA import_area" command.

Reading the thread, my impression was that most people opposed the

"people shouldn't be invoking manual vacuums anyway". I think the
