You probably should explain why you think that rather than just rule it
out, though I don't think we should be editing what people ask for.

We already have autovacuum, which runs VACUUM and ANALYZE to a set
schedule. We could have kept that outside core, but didn't. 

It's not too big a stretch to imagine we could redesign autovacuum as a
GP scheduler, with autovacuum as just one/two regular scheduled jobs.
