I think that reasoning is fundamentally unsound, because (a) a lot of
people already do vacuuming via a cron job or autovacuum, and (b)
autovacuum is definitely the wave of the future.  So it's foolish
to design this messaging around the assumption that there will be
a human attentive to the on-line output from VACUUM.  We should be
ensuring that the message gets into the postmaster log --- whether
it gets sent to the client is secondary.
