Reindexing is not routine maintenance for PostgreSQL, so this seems

Well, a SELECT statement "hits" a whole row, not a single column; but
even if you could somehow figure out a way to tally up per-column
statistics (and it's certainly not obvious to me how to do such a
thing) it doesn't follow that a column which is frequently accessed is
a good candidate for indexing.
I don't think this is a good project for a first-time hacker, or
something that can realistically be completed in one summer. It
sounds more like a PhD project to me. I wrote to another student who
is considering submitting a GSOC proposal with some ideas I thought
might be suitable. You might want to review that email:
