We have separate OpenWrite opcodes in xfer and regular insert code. We
open destination space curson always (to determine whether the space is
empty), but we can set the flag when open source space cursor. But this
will forbid to check source space for emptiness in xfer code or will
require to 'workaround' it using two cursors.

By the way, I observed that the following code is dead:
