[ shrug ]  I don't care --- if you do, then do that.

I finally realized exactly what was bugging me about "dbfile_size": it
seems to imply that we are measuring the size of one *file*, which is
under no circumstance the definition of any of these functions (see
file splitting behavior for relations exceeding 1GB).

pg_relation_size plus pg_complete_relation_size is fine.  Ship it...
