Speaking of which... what's the status of the patch that allows seqscans
to piggyback on already running seqscans on the same table?

To the best of my knowledge no such work has been done. There is a
project (who's name escapes me) that lets you run queries against a
remote postgresql server from a postgresql connection to a different
server, which could serve as the basis for what you're proposing.

BTW, given your experience, you might want to check out Bizgres.
(http://pgfoundry.org/projects/bizgres/) I'm sure your insights would be
most welcome.
