Speaking of performance side effects, does this avoid O(N^2)
performance on index tuple insertion with duplicate values, for all
insertion orderings?  For example, does it descend directly to the
right leaf page for the insert rather than starting at the front of
the block of duplicate values and scanning to the right for a
block with space, with a random chance to split a full block on
each page it moves through?
