You guys are confirming what we predicted.  This was a "like to have"
from our customer and we wanted to see if anyone else had tried this.

Yes, the effect of locality groups would be about the same in an in
memory system. The only exception would be if you're not using locality
groups and are fetching a particular column, the automatic seeking
behavior of the column filtering iterator would be more efficient with
in memory rfiles.

Why would locality groups be useful in an in-memory system?
