The CommitFest application lists you as the reviewer for this patch.
Are you (I hope) planning to review it?
I see you posted up a follow-up email asking Tom what he had in mind.
Personally, I don't think this needs incredibly complicated testing.
I think you should just test a workload involving inserting and/or
updating rows with lots of trailing NULL columns, and then another
workload with a table of similar width that... doesn't. If we can't
find a regression - or, better, we find a win in one or both cases -
then I think we're done here.
