Because CLUSTER is divided into two major operations, (data

Something like that would be nice to see how long each step takes,
like vacuum verbose.
Is that information available in cluster.c atm ? I am looking for
some hints here. One of the reasons I decided to go with this patch,
is to learn something - and cluster seems to be touching very 'bone'
tuples system (just like vacuum), and indices. I would appreciate any
I am looking for opinions, on what information should be presented.
What would be useful is some kind of a metric of how (de)clustered
the table was before CLUSTER, and the same # of dead vs. live row
counts that vacuum verbose prints.
We don't really have a good metric for clusteredness, as have been
discussed before, so if you can come up with a good one that would
be useful in the planner as well, that would be great.
I really don't know where and how should I calculate such param. Any
