That maximum size is "the largest row that I have encountered in the course
of compaction, since I started."

Hence "compacted," to try to indicate that it is not necessarily the row of
maximum size which currently exists. For example, if you had a huge row at
some time in the past and have now removed it (and have not restarted in
the interim) this value will be misleading.
