I'd say add that to each database entry.  To get the sum of all
databases you'd need some sort of refactoring, because currently when a
backend reads the stats file it only gets its own stats.  One idea is to
create an additional counter in the stats file, stored separately from
database entries.

If you add a tuples updated/deleted/inserted to databases, autovacuum
can make use of that too (it's even mentioned on an XXX comment in the
code somewhere).
