Interesting concept.  That might be a way to avoid the extra disk
I/O to set hint bits, and then some.  I haven't tried it, but I'm
going to make a note to take a look when (if???) I get some free
time.  If you give it a try, please post the results.  If you're I/O
bound (rather than CPU bound) and you choose *extremely* aggressive
settings, the multiple writes to pages *might* collapse in cache and
significantly reduce I/O.

I don't think I'd try it on a release prior to 8.4, however.  Nor
would I consider trying this in a production environment without a
good set of tests.
