directly update pg_statistic or report their in progress numbers to the
stats collector. The key change here is the partial execution numbers

Are you loading using COPY? Why not break down the load into chunks?
INSERT - but we could maybe workaround by chunking the INSERT. However
that *really* breaks the idea that in SQL you just say what you want,
not how the database engine should do it! And more practically means
that the most obvious and clear way to add your new data has nasty side
effects, and you have to tip toe around muttering secret incantations to
make things work well :-)

I'm still thinking that making postgres smarter about having current
stats for getting the actual optimal plan is the best solution.
