Okay, but still it will be proportional to number of partitions and
the partition keys.  Is it feasible to store ranges only for
partitions that are actively accessed?  For example, consider a table
with 100 partitions and the first access to table requires to access
5th partition, then we store ranges for first five partitions or
something like that.  This could be helpful, if we consider cases that
active partitions are much less as compare to total partitions of a
