This problem might have gone away since then --- I think we are now
taking a lock to ensure only one ANALYZE per table at a time; so the
manual ANALYZEs should only be delayed a bit not report errors.

The DROP is at risk, but CREATE is also at risk because autovac feels
free to connect to template0.  (One of the reasons we invented template0
was to prevent CREATE DATABASE failures due to someone-else-connected,
but autovac has broken that idea.)

Possibly we could handle these by extending create/drop db to check
whether a process-connected-to-the-target-db is an autovac, and if so
send it a SIGINT and wait for the process to terminate, instead of
