Overview
Comment:Multiply all cursor step cost estimates by the estimated size of the row in bytes, in order to get the query planner ot make use of estimated row sizes. This check-in uses magic numbers in a few places (for example, estimates of the size of output rows) and needs lots of refinement. Consider this a proof-of-concept only.
