I defined that field in case JRD ever needed to support
different types of physical indexes structure -- hash, precise,
bona fide clustered, etc. I suggest it be reserved for that
purpose. Since there is absolutely nothing differenet the
engine would need to do to support de facto ordered tables,
I don't see any point in recording the load order in the
system tables. Just my very humble opinion, as usual.
