Attached version of patch is debugged. I would like to note that number of
bugs was low and it wasn't very hard to debug. I've rerun tests on it. You
can see that numbers are improved as the result of your refactoring.

Beside simple bugs, there was a subtle bug in incremental item indexes
update. I've added some more comments including ASCII picture about how
item indexes are shifted.

Now, I'm trying to implement support of old page format. Then we can decide
which approach to use.

With best regards,
Alexander Korotkov.
