Yes, you can expect that it would be increased in FB2.0, but remember that
FB1.5 is not so long time ago released thus don't expect it next week. The
size will be 1/4 of the page_size.

It's better to keep your indexes so small as possible, because the larger
the key the more index pages are needed.
