But it's not the executor that checks uniqueness, it's built into the btre code. If someone manages to crack uniqueness for GiST indexes, we'll have our answer, since it has exactly the same problem but on a different scale. (Or vice-versa, if some gets uniqueness for multiple indexes, we can do it for GiST also).
