It depends a little bit on the postgres version you are using. If you
are only ever adding to the table, and you are not updating it or
deleting from it, I think the index is always optimal.
Once you start deleting from it there are a few cases where older
versions would not properly re-use the empty entries, requiring a
REINDEX. (Deleting low numbers and always adding high numbers was one of
the cases)

However, I believe that as long as you vacuum often enough, so that the
system knows where the unused entries are, you don't ever have to drop
and re-create the index.
