Is it possible to get rid of the "t_natts" fields in the tuple header? Is this field 
only for "alter table add/drop" support? Then it might
possible to get rid of it and put the "t_natts" field in the page header, not the 
tuple header, if it can be assured that when updating/inserting
records only a compatible (a page file with the same number of attributes) page file 
is used. Especially master-detail tables would 
profit from this, reducing the tuple overhead by another 9%.

Might this be possible?

TIP 2: you can get off all lists at once with the unregister command
