The row cache is only really useful in very specific cases involving very
small, hot, and uniform in size datasets. Many more people have shot
themselves in the foot by using it than have had great success.

The off-heap row cache also invalidates on UPDATE, which is significantly
different from what many people expect.

FWIW, I'd also like to know the answer to this question.
