The slowness was in the frackin' "convert the hash to an index in the

Then it's past due to finally stop the madness of modulo prime table and
use a power of 2 size. In essence what modulo prime does is simply
enhancing the quality of your hash function w.r.t. collisions (it helps
to distribute values more evenly).
Any of new decent hashes are good enough to work with plain slice the
lower bits approach.
