I guess this would possibly be a path to create indexes... without any
actual data in the table. Sequential scans would be costly, but queries
with a predicate matching the sorted columns would be very quick. Not sure
how REINDEX could be made to work with that though. And might end up
requiring something like partitioned indexes.
Disclaimer: I *really* haven't thought this through.

We don't currently have REINDEX CONCURRENTLY.
