The query isn't very efficient, since it fetches more data than it
uses (including post content, which will probably be larger than all
other fields combined).

page_rows() recurses but doesn't pass the $pages array by reference;
does that mean it's keeping n copies in memory (one per
hierarchy-level) while it walks the tree? That'd be murder on large
