well, shouldn't autovacuum take care of "regular" vacuums? in addition to
autovacuum, tables with data changes are vacuumed and reindexed once a day -
still performance seems to degrade slowly until a vacuum full is
initiated... could an additional daily vacuum over the entire db (even on
tables that only get data added, never changed or removed) help?
