Yes, tuplestore multiple positioning will give the greate help to the
window function. Ideally, it is better that tuplestore'd have all the
positions and have some kind of capability to discard old rows so that
it can stay in TSS_MEM, which helps window function's sliding frame.
But it isn't really critical, just performance matter.
