We would have to write two records per split instead of one as now.
Another way is new xlog AM method: we have XXX_redo, XXX_undo (unfunctional)
and XXX_desc (for debug output) now - add XXX_compact (or whatever)
able to modify record somehow for BAR. For heap, etc this method could
be {return} (or NULL) and for btree it could remove inserted tuple
from record (for aborted TX).
