Im a full time Postgresql DBA. Have used postgresql  for 5+ years and it 
doesn't do so well with the very uneven data distribution the dataset I 

This is exactly why I am doing this work. I am primarily trying to 
experiment with some designs as proof of concepts. PostgreSQL is a general 
purpose DB wich does great most of the time, but I think it does not do well 
with very unevenly distributed data in the analytics environment at my job.

Have only been in this new job for about 4 months, but so far it seems by
