In all plausible test cases you should be able to know the total number
of tuples being sorted independently.  Counting the tuples processed in
each run would require extra per-tuple overhead, which I'd rather avoid
until proven necessary.

The total-data-volume aspect may or may not be interesting, not sure
yet.  Let's see what we can learn from the present low-impact patch.
