Regarding the batching for attribute data - based on your explanation of
how it works, I'm at a loss to understand why the person who wrote the
MySQL code thought that was a good idea in the first place.  It seems
the only thing it accomplishes is to write all of the attribute data
TWICE.  I need to look at the code more, but at this point I'm really
thinking that the entire batching idea was ill-conceived from the start.
 It's possible it MIGHT have once been a good idea IF using legacy
MyISAM tables, but honestly, the world would be better off had the
MyISAM storage engine died with MySQL 4.1 in the late 90s.
