Allow disabling automatic Next Extent calculations

Informix automatically doubles the Next Extent size for every 16 extents on a table. This action will continue until an extent is large enough to provide at least 10% free space.
On very large, slow-growing tables, this can lead to an incredible waste of space.
The Next Size parameter is also basically made obsolete, as is the DBAs ability to predict next extent sizes and size them appropriately.
