but deleted tuples are not considered in the total number, because the delta
of {n_live_tuples + n_dead_tuples} is not changed by DELETE. We add the number
of DELETE into n_live_tuples and subtract it from n_dead_tuples.

Yeah, I was concerned about that when I was making the patch, but didn't
see any simple fix.  A large number of DELETEs (without any inserts or
updates) would trigger a VACUUM but not an ANALYZE, which in the worst
case would be bad because the stats could have shifted.

We could fix this at the cost of carrying another per-table counter in
the stats info, but I'm not sure it's worth it.

I believe that whenever autovacuum performs a VACUUM it actually performs a VACUUM ANALYZE at leas the old contrib version did and I think Alvaro copied that.
