So... erm... dinky machine (4GB physical + 4GB swap for now), rather
large data set (a hair over a million rows).  I ran out of memory before the
add constraint operation could complete (reindex as well).

My inclination would be to drop the most recent half or so of the rows
and attempt to reindex.

I'd be happy to provide someone with a copy of the dump...
but it's ~70MB bzip'd.
