Well that's true it does. But only once per row. So analyze would have set the
bit on every row. You could do the same thing with something ligter like
"select count(*) from <table>".
Tom's thinking was that you would only expect a high update rate for a short
time until all those bits were set.
Slony's inserts, updates, and deletes count as updates to the table as well.
Ask me about EnterpriseDB's RemoteDBA services!
