      Description

      Currently, when pages become too large, we split down the tree, that is, a too-large WiredTiger internal page splits into two levels, with the current page becoming the parent of a new set of internal pages. A better approach (for internal pages other than the root), is to split up the tree, where a too-large internal page would split into N pages, inserted into the current page's parent.
