Just to throw my two bits in here :). If we do that, how does that
effect the idea that most people in the web world use (id serial primary
key), even though that is not what they are searching on?

More specifically, does HOT help conditions where a composite comes into
play (session_id,last_active) ... which would be a more heavily updated
index than just the primary key.
