Could you run a benchmark on a larger dataset that involves harddisk

And what about the proposal to include the bbox for large geometries?
(Maybe you could add the 4 floats = 16 bytes after the last geometry,
so the offsets for the other code doesn't change? It might even be
sensible to move the SRID to the end of the serialized format for this
