Thanks.
(Email subject updated.) 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? ;-) -- Bruce Momjian <br...@momjian.us> http://momjian.us EnterpriseDB http://enterprisedb.com + As you are, so once was I.
