Nothing as such.  It is just that the previous code might have some
reason to keep it at 128, probably if there are that many overflow
bucket pages, then it is better to reindex the index otherwise the
performance might suck while traversing the long overflow chains.  In
general, I see your point that if we can provide user to have that big
overflow space, then let's do it.
