Wow, that seems a horrid kludge.  Is the standard responsible for that
one, or is it a PostgreSQL extension?
Could you point me at where in the fine manual this is covered?  I've
never stumbled across it in the many hours I've spent in reading the
manual.  A search didn't help much.  I poked around all the relevant
sections I could think of without success.  I even resorted to:
find -name '*.sgml' | xargs grep -i \\.count
which only kicked out:
   Example: <literal>Top.Countries.Europe.Russia</literal>
