Balazs, don't care about this. You database never will be read
subsequently even if you'll expand it's size inserting million of
records and then deleting them and performing sweep to force garbage
collection. Each table's records will be placed on pages physically
far from each other after updates, 80% of selects will be joins of
several tables, used indices will be read from another pages etc.
