If we have to do whole tuple comparison then storing of changed parts might
need to be
be done in a byte-by-byte way rather then at column offset boundaries.
This might not be possible with current algorithm as it stores in WAL
information column-by-column and decrypts also in similar way.

Currently I have planned to put it transam/README, as most of WAL
description is present there.
