If we can get back COW during 1.3 this overhead is zero (all new
channels / layers etc. can be created as COW tiles with the
apppropriate contents -- huge speedup).

I believe COW was lost because there were problems making it stable
with all the spaghetti in 1.1.x, but presumably as we wipe out the
worst of the spaghetti we should be able to bring it back, no?
