If autovacuum_vacuum_cost_delay is set to 20, my pitiful desktop system
takes 8.4 seconds to analyze a 8000 page table:

DEBUG: "bar": scanned 3000 of 8811 pages, containing 681000 live rows and 0 dead rows; 3000 rows in sample, 2000097 estimated total rows
LOG: automatic analyze of table "" system usage: CPU 0.00s/0.01u sec elapsed 8.39 sec

So I guess logging on ANALYZE is not that removed from reality.

I also think we should remove these DEBUG messages, that are now

DEBUG: autovac: will ANALYZE bar
