If people want to count ALL rows of a table. The contrib stuff is pretty useful. It seems to be transaction safe.

Interesting -- I didn't know about the contrib stuff. I'll update the
docs patch.



Personall I think a system table containing information about all tables in the database would be best. The contrib stuff provides a lot of useful information which would be perfect for a system view (dead tuples, number of records, ...). I guess many people would consider that to be useful. This would not fix the COUNT problem but it would provide the most essential information people need: The number of records in the table.

Maybe this is worth discussing.
