> If in most records a field is null, Trevni writes a null byte (zero length) for that
record in that column.  This might be optimized by instead using a run-length encoding for
lengths.  The length is signed, so negative lengths might be used to indicate the number of
zero-lengths before the next non-zero value.  This could thus be back-compatible.
