Sorry, it's not possible to split this patch into two, and then choose
just one or both pieces. I could split it, but using just the
'per-database' part would not make sense.

The problems is that right now, when stat's are reset for a single table
or function, the timestamp is set just for that one item, not for the
whole database. So just a blind split of the patch (and using just the
per-database part) would mean the info about tables/functions is lost.

I can prepare an alternative patch, using just per-database timestamps. So
even a reset for a single table/function would set the timestamp for the
whole database.
