Just a comment from the side line; can't the rough "set
enable_seqscan=off" be considered as sort of a hint anyway?  There have
been situations where we've actually had to resort to such crud.

Beeing able to i.e. force a particular index is something I really
wouldn't put into the application except for as a very last resort,
_but_ beeing able to force i.e. the use of a particular index in an
interactive 'explain analyze'-query would often be ... if not outright
useful, then at least very interessting.
