No. If we were to refactor pg_constraint as I mentioned earlier,
then it could have a natural primary key (reloid, constrname)
(replacing the existing nonunique index on reloid) and then a number
of things could be sped up. But just piling more indexes on a
fundamentally bad design doesn't appeal to me ...
Will review the revised patch today.
