(1) repalloc will probably copy the data.

(2) that answer doesn't excuse you from choosing a limit.

We could get around (1) by something like Robert's idea of segmented
allocation, but TBH I've seen nothing on this thread to make me think
it's necessary or would even result in any performance improvement
at all.  The bigger we make that array, the worse index-cleaning
is going to perform, and complicating the data structure will add
another hit on top of that.
