> With the old technology, if a particular node in the trie has many children that contain
no split points, TotalOrderPartitioner creates a separate empty leaf node for each one.  This
takes a lot of space, which in turn limits the depth to which we can grow these trees to avoid
making too many sparse nodes, so there is a parameter that defaults to 2 to control the depth.
 With this patch, I can guarantee that each split point will create only three trie nodes
in the trie: an empty one, a leaf that contains only one split point, and the internal nodes
as needed, for a total space of perhaps 50-200 bytes per split point, even if the entire trie
is elaborated.  There are pathological cases that can cause a recursion overflow during creation,
so i have set the default tree max depth to 200, but I expect almost all tries to be fully
elaborated, which means in turn that each byte of the sought key gets touched at most twice.
