Maybe you are misunderstanding what "keys" refers to.  That means all 
members of the primary key, not all values.

And yes, the object index hurts performance.  It is not a performance 
feature.  It's only purpose is to make sure you don't load two of the 
same object into one process' memory at once, which some users found 
strange and unintuitive.  Ultimately, the scoping problems seem to 
outweigh the benefits, so I turn it off in my code now.
