This is partially done --- you'll have to split it into multiple items
if you want to preserve the bit about keeping different plans for
different parameter values.  Note that in the current code, any VACUUM
or ANALYZE on a table will force relcache inval and hence replan; see
vac_update_relstats.  So the only case not covered as far as
non-parameterized queries go is large growth of a table without any
vacuuming or analyzing ... and you're going to have problems anyway
if you don't analyze after loading a table.  We may in fact find that
our problem is now too many replans rather than too few.

This is done.

This too.
