    Description

      WiredTiger compaction doesn't rewrite overflow keys/values, so if there's an overflow item at the end of the file, it won't be moved and the file won't be compacted.

      This doesn't affect MongoDB (which doesn't currently have overflow items), and overflow items are relatively rare, so there's no reason to do this work absent a customer/workload that needs it.
