While that may be a nice preference, under your usage pattern that does
not appear to be a good idea. As long as your disk I/O isn't saturated
you want to be running vacuums a lot more often than you are. (Analyze should
only be needed if the distrution of values is changing constantly. An example
would be timestamps indicating when an update occured.)
