I feel like this could be data driven.  I mean, the cost model is
based mainly on the tuple width and the size of the SortTuple array.
So, it should be possible to tests of both algorithms on 32, 64, 96,
128, ... byte tuples with a SortTuple array that is 256MB, 512MB,
768MB, 1GB, ...  Then we can judge how closely the cost model comes to
mimicking the actual behavior.
