I thought about that, but AFAICS a heavily used sequence would merely
end up as a single hot entry in the shared buffer arena (or at worst,
an often-hit page in kernel buffers).  It could not result in a lot of
actual I/O because it's only one page; at most one would expect one
write per checkpoint cycle.  So putting it on particularly fast disk
would be a useless exercise.
