This seems like the most desirable solution, everything else I've
thought of is really just a kluge.
We could make ANALYZE use optimistic locking, so it doesn't attempt the
catalog lock until later, so ANALYZE would be two internal transactions.
It should not overwrite the reltuples values from a concurrent CREATE
We should not allow VACUUM to be concurrent with either CREATE INDEX or
ANALYZE, but then thats not the problem here anyway.
