I'm not sure autovac should go completely catatonic during the day;
what if someone does an unusual mass deletion, or something?  But
it does seem pretty reasonable to have a notion of a maintenance
window where it should be more active than it is at other times.

Maybe what you want is two complete sets of autovac parameters.
Definitely at least two sets of the vacuum-delay values.
