Wow... not sure how I missed that. I *did* create this schema ages ago, perhaps it wasn't there, or at the time I had no idea what the implications were. *shrug*

until HASH is at a point where it is usable in production.

Uh, the manual already does say

    Note: Testing has shown PostgreSQL's hash indexes to perform no better
    than B-tree indexes, and the index size and build time for hash indexes
    is much worse. Furthermore, hash index operations are not presently
    WAL-logged, so hash indexes might need to be rebuilt with REINDEX after
    a database crash. For these reasons, hash index use is presently

under 11.2 Index Types, as well as various derogatory remarks elsewhere.
