The other reason is that it depends on the database encoding. I suppose
you could make an argument that that's fixed for as long as IMMUTABLE
needs to think about --- but we'd have to remember to undo the marking
if database encoding ever becomes less fixed.
Just out of curiosity, what's the use-case for this function in an index
