Not entirely true if we consider line pointer redirection, which involves
changing 4 bytes. You can argue that for quick pruning we don't do any
line pointer redirection though.

Also my worry about dealing with unreachable heap-only dead tuples
remain. We may need to do far more work to identify that they are not part
any reachable HOT chain and hence can be removed.
