It's been debated before whether pg_dump should append ANALYZE to the
end of the load script.  It has always been determined that it shouldn't
(see archives for arguments).

However, an 'Auto-vacuum' process should watch stats and re-analyze the
table when the larger of 30% or 1000 rows has been affected (inserts, or
deletes mostly). That is probably a better solution overall.
