You can modify mnesia_frag and tell mnesia to use your version instead
of the default. How to do this is documented in mnesia. The downside is
of course that you'd have to duplicate/maintain a whole bunch of other logic
as well, just to make this small change, but in the process of doing this,
you may arrive at some suggestion on how to make this parameterizable.
