cause rfile blocks to be read into memory and closed immediately, releasing the decompressor.
 A decompressor will not be kept for each deep copy in this case.

5 terms would allocate 5 decompressors.  W/ cache only one decompressor was allocated.

>>> A large iterator tree may create many instances of Compressors.  These instances
are pulled from a pool that never decreases in size.  So, if 50 simultaneous queries are
run over dozens of files, each with a complex iterator stack, there will be thousands of compressors
created.  Each of these holds a large buffer.  This can cause the server to run out of memory.
