Also, I'd be a bit inclined to disable the counter reset whenever a column

+1.  Better to err on the side of duplicate analyzes than none at all.

Also, I'm not surprised this took so long to discover; I doubt most
users are aware that you *can* analyze individual columns.

Is there any significant advantage to not analyzing all columns? Only case I can think of is if you have a fair number of columns that have been toasted; otherwise I'd think IO would completely swamp any other considerations.
