Hmm. You would likely be doing the initial data load with a "too small"
numbuckets for single-batch behavior, but if you successfully loaded all
the data then you could resize the table at little penalty. So yeah,
that sounds like a promising approach for cases where the initial rowcount
estimate is far above reality.
But I kinda thought we did this already, actually.
