    Except  for  two different sorted (but correct) results while
    selecting inherited tables in "misc", regression tests passed
    with 2K.

    Why  shouldn't  it work? All the catalogs that require really
    big data have toast tables now.

    Anyway, the 8K default BLCKSZ already restricts index  tuples
    to 2700 bytes.  So I wouldn't recommend it at all.
