Wow. That's certainly an interesting idea. We might end up turning the autovacuum process into a generalized scheduler/cron-like entity that way though. I'd rather we just build that. Users would then be able to run a script periodically which would add VACUUM commands to be run on whichever tables they want to the jobs queue, either for immediate execution or at whatever time they want (or possibly chronically :). Thanks! Stephen
