Hm ... I don't agree that keys and values are interchangeable, and
I don't see that empty keys are a good thing (whereas empty values are
clearly a reasonable edge case). So I think this is going a bit far;
it seems to me it'd be giving up a lot of syntax-error detection
capability in return for some not-actually-helpful symmetry.
On the other hand, I seldom use hstore so I'm probably not the best
person to be judging the appropriateness of these options. Any other
votes out there?
