Would this make it much more difficult to support user-defined indexes
on system catalogs?  It looks like we don't support that at the moment
but as we see larger Postgres installations it seems likely we'll need
to.  I don't really consider myself a very heavy Postgres user but I've
got databases w/ > 30k entries in pg_class and near 300k in
pg_attribute...  Those aren't shared but it sounds like you were talking
about all of them above anyway.
