This seems much more useful behaviour than currently. Running an EXPLAIN
ANALYZE for large queries can be a real pain, especially on a production
box which is in live use - so tuning a test tool has a meaningful effect
on other users performance too.

There's a lot of thought gone in here, so I'd vote yes, though without
having done a detailed code review.
