[ I tested this all against a clean checkout of trunk and it looks good. The new algorithm is faster on inserts but interestingly for single inserts is makes for a larger db pre-compact. After compaction the db is smaller by a factor of 3
I thought we leave the new "sequentially random" as the default? Paul, is the concern just what's advertised to users?
Algorithms based on the system clock I think can be problematic as they assume all machines have the correct time.
