No doubt, which is why no one has proposed removing the manual commands.
(Yet, anyway.)  But adding complication to them is not going to be an
easy sale.  We have limited manpower for development and we cannot
afford to get bogged down maintaining a codebase with enormous bloat
from useless legacy "features".

So: show me a use case for this that will still make sense in a
mostly-autovacuum world.  I can see a need for manual vacuuming of
individual special-case tables, but I don't see why schema-wide
vacuuming is so useful as to justify diverting development effort to it.
