I think that's a meaningless question unless you specify a particular
usage pattern --- but in any case, I doubt anyone has tried to
characterize it that way. Feel free to run some experiments and tell
us about your results...

It copies the reference, see toast_insert_or_update in
Speaking of which, though, it looks like an update or insert will
forcibly uncompress (and later recompress) a compressed-in-line datum,
which seems like a waste of cycles to me. Jan, shouldn't the test for
VARATT_IS_EXTENDED at line 357 instead read VARATT_IS_EXTERNAL?
