No, that's a bad idea, because it means that any large table starves
even-larger tables.

(Note: in all this I assume we're all using "size" as a shorthand for
some sort of priority metric that considers number of dirty tuples not
only size.  We don't want every worker insisting on passing over every
small read-only table every time, for instance.)
