I've already tried a key cache equal to and larger (up to what I have
heap space for) than my current row cache.  But for very narrow rows the
row cache is empirically and theoretically better.

I realise changing IndexInterval is an unusual proposed configuration,
but such is the burden of high cardinality narrow rows.
