I am thinking we are best just doing the index chain we already have to

If you are modifying the table (like with UPDATE) it makes sense to be
more aggressive and do the whole page because you know there are
probably other table modifications, but for an index lookup there isn't
any knowledge of whether the table is being modified so looking at more
than we need seems like overkill.
