I suspect that this is somewhat a domain specific issue. In some areas
you don't need to know the total number of rows in your tables, in
others you do.

If I were you, I would have an autovacuum daemon running and rather than doing select count(*), I would look at stats generated by vacuums. They give approximate number of tuples and it should be good enough it is accurate within a percent.

Just another approach of achieving same thing.. Don't be religious about running a qeury from SQL prompt. That's it..
