I am curious, are there any 'developer tricks' for influencing when old
slots are reused? For example, instead of adding the new relationships
immediately after deleting old ones, but keeping a cache of 'relationships
to add' and adding them a little later. Will that increase the chance of old
slots being reused?

I think this is relevant to cases where the developer wants to keep the
database reasonably compact but does large amounts of deletion and creation.
