That's true.  It gets us too.  We haven't yet found a way to do it - the 
table split algorithm is
already very complex and has to handle a lot of situations.  Regrettably 
there are more urgent
development tasks in the next 1-2 months but if anyone else wants to 
work on a patch we'd
certainly try to help.
