Actually, I have a larger question that I was thinking about.  Because
we already have lots of per-column stats, and now the dependency score,
is it possible to mix the per-column stats and dependency score in a way
that multi-column frequency/histogram stats are not necessary?  That
might be a less costly approach I had not considered.

Or did I miss that discussion too?  ;-)
