We have seen considerable improvements to VACUUM in practically every
major release, so that between 7.2 and 8.3, it has become a "way less
huge issue." (I don't recall there being anything *major* improved
about VACUUM in 7.3, but then, I don't remember much about 7.3, having
only barely used it.)
I'm glad to hear that the efforts have not slackened :-)!
