Dunno.  We really haven't done a lot with this; it's not even in our
stress test tool.  Compaction is roughly 2x as fast with bytestype as
asciitype, and scanning is vaguely similar to that.

Right now scanning does one pass to get the keys, then another to get
the slices, so merging those is the really obvious one.
