This seems quite mystifying.  What can account for such a large
performance difference in such a pessimal scenario?  It seems to me
that without chain conversion, WARM can only apply to each row once
and therefore no sustained performance improvement should be possible
-- unless rows are regularly being moved to new blocks, in which case
those updates would "reset" the ability to again perform an update.
However, one would hope that most updates get done within a single
block, so that the row-moves-to-new-block case wouldn't happen very

I'm perplexed.
