Do you actually still have a problem with the plans changing when the
stats target is above 100 or so?  I think the notion of "force ANALYZE
to do a full scan" is inherently wrongheaded ... it certainly would not
produce numbers that have anything to do with ordinary practice.

If you have data statistics that are so bizarre that the planner still
gets things wrong with a target of 1000, then I'd like to know more
about why.
